Monponsett Pond - Algae Update - November 5
On Tuesday, November 3rd, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) collected water samples from West Monponsett Pond at Ocean Ave beach in Hanson and the state boat ramp in Halifax.  MassDEP analyses showed cyanobacteria levels of 36,000 cells/ml at Ocean Ave beach and 90,000 cells/milliliter (ml) at the state boat ramp. The Ocean Ave beach level is below the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml, while the state boat ramp level is above it. MDPH recommends that the current advisory remain in place.  Sampling will occur at the waterbody again next week.
