   The West Monponsett Pond is currently "Closed,"  The East Monponsett Pond is currently "Clsoed."

      On Monday, August 14, 2017, MassDEP collected and water samples from both the East and West Monponsett Ponds were analyzed on Wednesday, August 14th & 15th, 2017.

The East Monponsett Pond samples collected at:
Rt 36 Boat Ramp (Holmes Street Beach) showed a cyanobacteria level of 39,898 cells/ml. 

     For East Monponsett Pond, while the levels are below the guideline, images received from a resident on East Monponsett taken on August 14th show a scum on an area of the pond.
    Based on the images of the scum, MDPH recommends that an advisory be posted at each access point at the water body to warn against water contact.

The West Monponsett Pond samples collected at:
Rt 58 Boat Ramp (State Boat Ramp) showed a cyanobacteria level of 117,188 cells/ml.
4th Avenue (Lingan Street Beach) showed a cyanobacteria level of 82,126 cells/ml.
Levels are above the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml.

MDPH recommends that an advisory "Beach Closed" sign be posted at the West Monponsett Pond to warn against water contact.  

     The West and East Monponsett Pond should not be used for swimming, boating, fishing, jet-skiing, etc. There is no swimming at any time at the Rt 58 Boat Ramp (State Boat Ramp.)

MassDEP plans on sampling again next week.
