How Long Island beaches scored on water quality

Data on water quality inspection results for beaches on Long Island and the rest of the state in 2011, compiled by the Natural Resources Defense Council from data gathered by local officials. Includes the number of days when either the beach was closed or a water advisory was issued. Some beaches, including those marked here with a * symbol, were closed to bathing in 2011 but were monitored as part of water quality investigations even though swimming was not allowed. In the listing for Crescent Beach, a single event led to the 101-day count of closing or advisory.
