Tanner Park Beach in Copiague is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria at levels that exceed New York State standards.

According to Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Dr. James Tomarken, bathing in water contaminated with bacteria can result in gastrointestinal illness, as well as infections of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat.

Additionally, the beach closure issued for Great Pond Beach at Peconic Dunes Camp has been lifted, as results of recent samples collected show the water quality to be within acceptable levels.

 For the latest information on regulated 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 at Suffolk County Beaches.
