Beach in Centerport Closed by Bacteria Levels

Huntington Beach Community Association Beach in Centerport is one of three beaches in Suffolk closed Friday because of the high levels of bacteria.

Also closed were Islip’s Lake Ronkonkoma Beach, and Bayport Beach in Bayport.

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  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.
