Have you ever wondered what cyanobacteria look like under the microscope? These chains of bacteria that obtain their energy from photosynthesis are no laughing matter. This one is Anabaena. Photo by George Zoto.

The West Monponsett Pond is currently "CLOSED"

    The bad news continues with the West Monponsett Pond closed due to high algae counts. The Board of Health thanks George Zoto of DEP and Mike Celona of DPH for keeping us informed. At least we know the water is not safe for recreational use, rather than guessing!
Please tell your visiting friends, including pets, to stay out of the West Monponsett Pond.

    On Monday, June 27th, MassDEP collected water samples on East and West Monponsett Ponds. The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on June 27-29.
     The East Monponsett sample, collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed a cyanobacteria level of 900 cells/ml.
     The West Monponsett Pond samples showed cyanobacteria levels of 339,000 cells/ml at 4th Avenue Beach, 402,000 cells/ml at the state boat ramp, and 442,000 cells/ml at Ocean Ave beach. The West Monponsett Pond levels are all above the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml.

MDPH recommends that the current advisory remain in place. MassDEP plans on collecting samples again next week.

Many thanks to Michael Celona, DPH and George Zoto, DEP, for their work!
