2 Long Island Beaches Closed Due to High Bacteria Levels

It may be a beautiful sunny day, but think twice before cooling off with a dip in the water at two Long Island beaches. 

The Nassau County Health Department says heavy rainfall caused stormwater runoff, which leads to high bacteria levels. 

The health department advised against bathing at these beaches until 9 p.m. Saturday: 

South Shore: 

  • Hewlett Point Beach – East Rockaway
  • Island Park Beach – Island Park

For up-to-date recorded information on beach openings and closings, call (516) 227-9700.
