Tanner Park Beach is closed to Bathing

                                                                                                               Benjamin Beach is reopened


Tanner Park Beach in Copiague is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria at levels in excess of acceptable criteria.


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


The beaches will reopen when further testing reveals that the bacteria have subsided to acceptable levels.


For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822 or contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours.
