Suffolk County Issues Advisory against Bathing at 60 Beaches Due to Heavy Rainfall

August 13th, 2018– Due to heavy rainfall that occurred yesterday and today, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 60 beaches. The 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 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. Please review the list below to see how this may affect bathing in our area.
