OLCOTT – Olcott Beach has been closed until further notice following testing by the Niagara County Department of Health that determined the water is “not suitable for swimming because of unsatisfactory bacteriological water quality.”

Health department officials made the announcement on Tuesday and stated they will continue monitoring the situation and “will reopen the beach for swimming when conditions return to a safe level.”
