West Monponsett Pond Closed
On Monday, June 20th, MassDEP collected water samples on East and West Monponsett Ponds. The samples were analyzed by MassDEP on June 20-22. The East Monponsett sample, collected at the Rt 36 boat ramp in Halifax showed too few to count cyanobacteria. The West Monponsett Pond samples showed cyanobacteria levels of 293,000 cells/ml at 4th Avenue Beach, 300,000 cells/ml at the state boat ramp, and 332,000 cells/ml at Ocean Ave beach. The West Monponsett Pond levels are all above the MDPH guideline level of 70,000 cells/ml. MDPH recommends that the current advisory remain in place. MassDEP plans on collecting samples again next week. Please let us know if you have any questions.

MassDOT and the MBTA are embarking on a long-term investment plan for the MBTA, and you are invited take the Focus40 Transit Priorities Survey. Please take the survey and share your thoughts on how the MBTA should prioritize different types of investments over the next 25 years for bus, rapid transit, commuter rail, ferry, and The RIDE. The survey is available in English, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese. Focus40 is the 25-year strategic vision for MBTA investments. This process is engaging
