The Cyanobacteria Advisories posted at both the Lower Mill Pond Grist Mill and the Lower Mill Pond Beach Association were REMOVED on November 7. The Brewster Health Department in collaboration with the Brewster Ponds Coalition, lifted the posting following five weeks of monitoring.
The Cyanobacteria algal level dropped to a low risk range per confirmatory test results and field observations. The pond is safe for recreational water activities. This is in accordance with MA Department of Public Health recommended guidelines.
Our regular pond monitoring for the season has ended.
