Officials Warn Against Bathing at 19 Long Island Beaches

Health officials are warning the public not to swim at 19 beaches in Nassau County because the beaches may have poor water quality caused by high levels of bacteria. 

The Nassau County Department of Health issued the advisory Monday, saying that it's a precautionary measure for beaches known to be impacted by storm-water runoff caused by recent heavy rainfall. 

Storm-water runoff can cause bacteria levels to exceed the standard for bathing water quality, the health department said. 

The advisory was to be lifted at 1 p.m. Tuesday unless additional heavy rainfall revealed continued elevated bacteria levels.
