On Monday, September 19th, MassDEP collected water samples from both East and West Monponsett Ponds.  The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on September 19-22nd.  The East Monponsett sample collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed a cyanobacteria level of 1,200 cells/ml.  The West Monponsett Pond samples showed cyanobacteria levels of 301,000 cells/ml at the 4th Avenue beach, 1,157,000 cells/ml at the state boat ramp, and 1,417,000 cells/ml at Ocean Ave beach.  The West Monponsett Pond levels are above the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml.
