Officials say the beach samples collected at Croton Point Park Beach and Philips Manor Beach "exceeded the maximum level of enterococcus bacteria" as outlined by the sanitary code.

A third test was scheduled to be performed on Monday. Officials say if the samples met the required safety standards, the beaches would be reopened.

If the enterococcus bacteria level remains high, "the beaches will remain closed and will undergo further testing."

Officials didn't report the new samples meet the required safety standards.
