James L. Tomarken, MD, MSW, MPH, MBA, Commissioner of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, says today that that the beach closures issued for the following beaches have been lifted, as results of recent samples collected show the water quality to be within acceptable levels:


  • Tanner Park Beach in Copiague
  • Benjamin Beach in Bayshore
