The Suffolk County Department of Health Services issued an advisory against bathing at 47 beaches due to Tuesday’s heavy rainfall.

These beaches are heavily influenced by storm-water runoff from surrounding watersheds and tributaries, which could elevate bacterial levels and affect bathing quality, officials say. The beaches are located within and adjacent to various north shore embayments (Cold Spring Harbor, Huntington Harbor and Bay, Centerport Harbor, Northport Harbor and Bay, Port Jefferson Harbor Complex, and Stony Brook Harbor), and those Long Island Sound beaches that are impacted by nearby storm water discharges (list of affected beaches are above). Copiague Harbor Beach in Copiague also remains closed.

This bathing advisory will remain in effect for at least 24 hours after all rainfall stops – or until the waters have been flushed by two successive tidal cycles. This advisory is subsequently expected to be lifted at 9 a.m. Thursday unless sampling indicates elevated bacterial numbers.

For the latest information, call the Bathing Beach hotline at 516-852-5822, contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 516-852-5760 during normal business hours, or visit the website: and under “Our Environment,” click “Beaches.”
