High levels of bacteria detected at the Dorothy P. Flint 4-H Camp in Baiting Hollow has forced the Suffolk County Department of Health to close the beach.

Officials said the beach will remain closed until testing reveals water quality is acceptable.

The bacteria enterococci, associated with runoff, was detected at the beach, according to the Department of Health.

The beach will likely be sampled daily in an effort to reopen it as soon as possible, according to a release.
