Suffolk County health officials are advising residents to stay out of the water at 65 beaches in the county due to potentially elevated bacteria levels after the recent heavy rainfall.

These are in spots that can be “heavily influenced by stormwater runoff” and are located in areas that see limited tidal flushing, the health department said in an advisory released Tuesday afternoon.

Unless samples indicate elevated bacterial levels, the advisory is expected to be lifted Wednesday at 10 a.m., officials said.
