The swim area at Sylvan Beach that previously changed from supervised to “swim at your own risk” is now closed, according to Village of Sylvan Beach officials.
Back in April, the village announced that the roughly 125-foot stretch of beach that was previously a supervised public swim area would be changing to “swim at your own risk,” due to the financial obligation of keeping up with state sanitary codes. Last month, the village announced that section of water would instead be closed entirely.
Village officials said that signs are now in place asking people not to access the water in that area, which is located directly behind DiCastro’s. The signs that were previously in place stating that it’s now “swim at your own risk” will also be removed.
NEWSChannel 2 first reported two weeks ago that this closure would be happening.
