County Advises Against Swimming at Several Huntington Beaches

Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 63 beaches around the county.

The advisory is based on the potential that the presence of bacteria at levels that exceed New York State standards will impact these areas.

Beaches covered by the advisory are located in areas that are heavily influenced by stormwater runoff from the surrounding watersheds and/or adjacent tributaries, and because of their location in an enclosed embayment, experience limited tidal flushing.

 The department recommends that bathing and other water contact be suspended in affected areas until the waters have been flushed by two successive tidal cycles (at least a 24 hour period) after the cessation of rainfall.  This advisory will be lifted on the morning of June 3, 2018, unless sampling conducted by the department finds elevated bacterial numbers persisting beyond the 24-hour period.

For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822, contact the Department’s Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours, or visit Suffolk County Department of Health Services beach monitoring webpage.
