Lake Ronkonkoma is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria in excess of acceptable criteria.
According to Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Dr. James Tomarken, bathing in bacteria-contaminated water can result in gastrointestinal illness, as well as infections of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
The beach will reopen when further testing reveals that the bacteria have subsided to acceptable levels.
Additionally, Benjamin Beach in Bay Shore is open to bathing.
For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822 or contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours. http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/HealthServices/EnvironmentalQuality/Ecology/BeachMonitoringProgram.aspx
