The Town of Islip’s Lake Ronkonkoma Beach, Huntington Beach Community Association Beach in Centerport, and Bayport Beach in Bayport, have 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.

Venetian Shores beach in Lindenhurst, which closed on Tuesday, July 27, has reopened.

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.
