Monponsett Pond - Algae Status - August 22
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 remain in place. MassDEP plans on collecting samples again this week. Please let us know if you have any questions.
