Monponsett Pond - Temporary Closure
The Town of Halifax through its agent, SOLitude Lake Management, will begin treatment of West Monponsett Pond on Monday, May 14th and end the treatment on Friday, May 18th. SOLitude will be treating West Monponsett Pond with a solution of aluminum sulfate. Aluminum sulfate binds with phosphorous, one of the key nutrients that helps algae to thrive. By making the phosphorous unavailable as a nutrient, algae growth is reduced. This is being done to improve the water quality of West Monponsett Pond and with the hope that the Pond will be open for more days this spring and summer for recreational use including boating, swimming, and fishing. The Town asks that the Pond not be used, including no boating, swimming, or fishing, on days that West Monponsett Pond is being treated. These include the periods of May 14th to May 18th. Recreational use of West Monponsett Pond while the Pond is being treated will reduce the efficiency of the treatment and may interfere with the work being done by SOLitude. Regular recreational use of the Pond will resume on Saturday, May 19th. The State Boat Ramp will be closed on the days that treatment occurs. Anyone needing additional information should contact the Halifax Board of Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
