Algae Data for 2016
The following table shows algae counts for the spring, summer and fall of 2016. A count of under 70,000 cells/ml (milliliter) is good. If there is a week in which the count goes above 70,000, it requires two consecutive counts of under 70,000 to lift the advisory on not swimming, boating, etc. At this time, West Monponsett and East Monponsett are tested once a week.
