Valley Grove Beach Closed Because of Bacteria

Valley Grove Beach in Eaton’s Neck was one of three beaches closed Wednesday because of a high bacteria count.
The three, including Tanner Park Beach in Copiague and Venetian Shores Beach in Lindenhurst, will reopen when further testing reveals that the bacteria have subsided to acceptable levels.
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.
For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 631-852-5822 or contact the Department’s Office of Ecology at 631-852-5760 during normal business hours.
