Health Officials Issue Advisory against Bathing at 64 Beaches

Categories: Health Services | Author: gkelly-mcgovern | Posted: 9/7/2017 | Views: 646

Due to the heavy rainfall that occurred last night, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 64 beaches. The advisory is based on the potential that bacteria in excess of 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 enclosed embayments experience limited tidal flushing. 

The department recommends 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 hour period) after the rain has ended.  This advisory will be lifted Friday, September 8 at 5 a.m. unless water samples indicate that elevated levels of bacteria have persisted beyond the 24-hour period.

For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 631-852-5822, contact the Department of Health Services’ Office of Ecology at 631-852-5760 during normal business hours, OR visit Suffolk County Department of Health Services’ beach monitoring webpage.
