Monponsett Pond - Algae Testing - June 5
On Monday, June 5th, MassDEP collected and analyzed water samples from both East and West Monponsett Ponds.  The East Monponsett sample collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed a cyanobacteria level of 600 cells/ml.  The West Monponsett Pond samples showed a cyanobacteria level of 900 cells/ml 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.
