Because of heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 65 beaches. Bacteria at levels that exceed state standards will affect these beaches.
The beaches are in areas that are heavily influenced by stormwater runoff from the surrounding watersheds or adjacent tributaries, and because of their location in an enclosed embayment, have limited tidal flushing.
The department recommends that 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 Tuesday, at 6 a.m., unless sampling conducted by the department reveals elevated levels of bacteria 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.
