West Monponsett Pond Closed

On Monday, August 22nd, MassDEP collected water samples from both East and West Monponsett Ponds. The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on August 23-26th.  The East Monponsett sample collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed no cyanobacteria. The West Monponsett Pond samples showed cyanobacteria levels of 423,000 cells/ml at 4th Avenue Beach, 518,000 cells/ml at the state boat ramp, and 437,000 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 closing West Monponsett Pond for recreational use remain in place. East Monponsett Pond remains open. 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 and the status of treatments for the algae.

Pond levels are lower than normal because Halifax has received very little rain during June (about 1 inch) and July (about 1.5 inches as of July 28). According to the United State Drought Monitor, Halifax is located at the border of regions marked "Abonormally Dry" and "Moderate Drought". The low level of the Pond is not due to the Brockton Water Department diverting water during these two months as they have not diverted during these two months.

Water Restrictions Continue

Restrictions on outside lawn watering and other outdoor water use continue. Check the announcement from the Water Department for more details.
