Due to recent heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 25 beaches. The advisory is based on the potential that the presence of bacteria at levels that exceed New York State standards will impact these areas.

The beaches covered by the advisory are located in areas that are heavily influenced by stormwater runoff from the surrounding watersheds and/or adjacent tributaries, and, because of their location in an enclosed embayment, experience limited tidal flushing.

Additionally, the following beaches remain closed:

Tanner Park Beach

Copiague

Remains Closed

Since 6/27/19

Lloyd Harbor Estate Beach

Lloyd Harbor

Remains Closed

Since 8/24/19

Huntington Beach Community Association Beach

Cold Spring Harbor Beach Club Beach

Health officials recommend that bathing and other water contact be suspended in affected areas until the waters have been flushed by two successive tidal cycles (at least a 24 hr. period) after the rain has ended. Unless sampling done by the Department finds elevated bacterial numbers persisting beyond the 24-hr period, this advisory will be lifted 7am Friday 8/30/19.

For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822, contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours, or visit the website link: https://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/health and in the search bar put "beach monitoring program".
