Southold Town Beach Reopened
Bay Hill POA Beach Remains Closed
James L. Tomarken, MD, MPH, MBA, MSW, Commissioner of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, said today that the beach closure issued for Southold Town Beach in Southold has been lifted, as results of recent samples collected show the water quality to be within acceptable levels.
Bay Hills Property Owners Association Beach in Huntington Bay remains closed to bathing due to elevated bacterial levels.
