Study to examine bacterial contamination and solutions at Crescent Beach in Glen Cove

Officials say they want to improve the sewage

Officials say they want to improve the sewage system in the area, reducing high levels of bacteria.

Nassau County officials today announced a $2 million feasibility study that will examine bacterial contamination at a Glen Cove beach and whether municipal sewers could be the solution.

Crescent Beach has been closed to swimmers and fishers for the past five years due to elevated bacteria levels. It’s disappointing to residents in the area who would like to enjoy their local shore.
