West Monponsett Pond - Algae Levels Continue to Rise
On Monday, July 11th, MassDEP collected a water sample from both East and West Monponsett Ponds.  The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on July 12-13.  The East Monponsett sample collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed a cyanobacteria level of 14,500 cells/ml.  The West Monponsett Pond sample collected at the 4th Avenue Beach in Halifax showed a cyanobacteria level of 1,174,000 cells/ml.  The West Monponsett Pond level is 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. Please let us know if you have any questions. More about why the Route 58 boat ramp is open and the Pond closed.
