On June 21, Nassau County, N.Y. officials informed the State Office of Emergency Management that E. coli was found in Long Beach's drinking water supply.

In response, the Governor has directed State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker and team to investigate the source of contamination and work with Nassau County and the City of Long Beach to ensure a similar incident doesn't happen again.

Dr. Zucker and New York State Department of Health professional engineers are on site at the Long Beach water treatment plant today to work with city officials to help investigate the source of the contamination.

Over the weekend, the Governor deployed 115,000 bottles of water to Long Beach residents to ensure access to clean water for residents and visitors.
