Sound Swim Alert for Westchester: Beaches Open!

swimAlert GreenSunday, June 1, 2014: The beaches in Westchester are open and the water is fine!

Saturday, May 31, 2014: The water at the Long Island Sound beaches in Westchester is clean and the beaches are open today. So if you don’t mind cool and breezy temperatures, and cool water, enjoy!

This is the second weekend of our Sound Swim Alerts for Westchester. We will keep you informed throughout the summer about whether the local waters are too polluted for swimming.

Our goals are to help you plan your summer activities but also to call attention to the problem of chronic bacterial pollution in the western end of Long Island Sound. You can learn all the details here.
