Amityville Beach reopened after bacteria levels drop

Amityville Beach, which had been closed Monday to swimming because of higher-than-acceptable bacteria levels, has been reopened, Suffolk County health officials said.

The closure was lifted because samples showed water quality was at an acceptable level, officials said.

To learn the latest on openings and closings, call the county's beach hotline at 631-852-5822.
