On Tuesday, May 30th, MassDEP collected water samples from both East and West Monponsett Ponds.  The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on May 30-31st.  The East Monponsett sample collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed no cyanobacteria.  The West Monponsett Pond samples showed no cyanobacteria at the 4th Avenue beach and 800 cells/ml at the state boat ramp. These levels are below the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml. MassDEP plans on collecting samples again next week.
