Department of Health: Results of Air and Water Samples for Bay Park Area Safe

Nassau County Department of Health officials said this week that water and air samples from communities surrounding the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant are “safely below State and Federal guidelines.”

The evaluation of both air and marine water samples taken on May 15, 2013 did not reveal any public health concerns.

Air monitoring results were well below the established State and Federal guidelines.  Marine water samples, conducted at 9 locations surrounding the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant were also well below the State and Federal guidelines set forth for bathing beach water quality analysis. 

“As promised to the residents in the communities surrounding the Bay Park Sewage treatment plant, testing by the Department of Health has been completed,” said Commissioner of Health Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein. “I am pleased that all samples taken were safely below State and Federal guidelines.”

County Health officials will continue to conduct routine bathing beach water quality monitoring at permitted beaches along the south shore of Nassau County.  Since mid-April when routine testing began, all samples conducted at these beaches were within the State and Federal water quality guidelines.
