Lake Ronkonkoma Beach in the Town of Islip has been closed to bathing as a result of higher than acceptable levels of blue-green algae, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services said Wednesday.
The beach was closed to bathers earlier in the month for the same reason, and was re-opened Aug. 22, after samples showed the water quality to be acceptable, the health department said.
There's no timetable to reopen the beach.
