Monponsett Pond - October 8

Report from Cathy Drinan, Board of Health Agent:

On Thursday, October 8th, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) collected a water sample from West Monponsett Pond at Ocean Avenue Beach in Hanson.  Laboratory analysis showed cyanobacteria levels of 100,000 cells/ml, above the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/milliliter. Microcystin toxin was not detected. MDPH recommends that the current advisory remain in place.  Sampling will occur at the waterbody again next week.
