OLCOTT, N.Y. (WKBW) — A beach advisory is back in place at Olcott Beach.

The department of health said it was anticipated to remain in place until further notice but it was lifted on July 16 after it was determined the water was suitable for swimming.

The department of health announced Tuesday it has once again issued a beach advisory for Olcott Beach as recent sampling conducted on Monday "has determined that the water is not suitable for swimming because of unsatisfactory bacteriological water quality."
