Beach Advisory Issued for Centerport Yacht Club Beach
Due to the rainfall that occurred Monday, August 7, 2017, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at Centerport Yacht Club Beach in Centerport. The advisory is based on the potential that bacteria in excess of New York State standards will impact the water.
Centerport Yacht Club Beach is located in an area that is heavily influenced by stormwater runoff from the surrounding watersheds and/or adjacent tributaries, and because of its location in an enclosed embayment, experiences limited tidal flushing.
Health officials recommend 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.
This advisory will be lifted Wednesday, August 9, 2017, at 8 a.m., unless sampling indicates elevated bacterial numbers persisting beyond the 24-hour period.
Additionally, Lake Ronkonkoma & Seaview Association Beach on the Great South Bay remain closed to swimming
