Rainfall Closes Multiple Huntington Beaches

Sunday and Monday’s heavy rainfall has led the Suffolk County Department of Health Services to issue an advisory against bathing at multiple beaches.

Beaches covered by the advisory are 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 rain has ended. If heavy rains persist beyond today or sampling done by the Department finds elevated bacterial numbers persisting beyond the 24-hour period, this advisory will remain in effect.

Additionally, the following beaches remain closed to bathing: Tanner Park Beach, Tides Beach, Beech Road Beach, Friendship Drive Beach, Islip Beach, East Islip Beach, West Oaks Recreation Club Beach and Lake Ronkonkoma.

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 the website link: www.suffolkcountyny.gov/health.
