The third of the three aluminum sulfate treatments for West Monponsett Pond, scheduled for this summer, to try to reduce the amount of nutrients available for the algae in West Monponsett Pond will be conducted on Thursday, July 23.
The area around West Monponsett Pond will be "postered" on Tuesday, July 21 and Wednesday, July 22.
These treatments do not affect the Town's drinking water. The Town does not use Monponsett Pond as a water supply. The orange posters and information are specific about not using the POND for drinking water.
Pond visitors should not use Pond water to drink, cook, boat, fish, swim, or for livestock on Thursday, July 23 and Friday, July 24 and should not use water from West Monponsett Pond for irrigation from Thursday, July 23 to Sunday, August 23.
If you have any questions about these programs, please contact the Halifax Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
