Two North Shore Beaches Close to Bathing

Copiague Harbor Beach Remains Closed

 

 

Dr. James Tomarken, Commissioner of Health Services, announced today that two north shore beaches are currently closed to bathing due to the finding of bacterial levels in excess of acceptable criteria. The beaches are: 

  • Stony Brook Yacht Club Beach- Stony Brook
  • Bayberry Cove Beach – Setauket

 

In addition Copiague Harbor Beach in Copiague remains closed.

 

These beaches will remain closed until health officials are able to determine that the water quality is acceptable.  In most cases, beaches that are closed will be sampled on a daily basis an effort to reopen them as soon as possible.
