Tanner Park Beach Closed
Steers Beach Closed
Bayberry Cove Beach Reopened
James L. Tomarken, Commissioner of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, said that Tanner Park Beach in Copiague and Steers Beach in Northport are closed to bathing due to the finding of bacterial levels in excess of acceptable criteria.
The beach closure issued for Bayberry Cove Beach in Strongs Neck has been lifted, as results of recent samples collected show the water quality to be within acceptable levels.
