Cyanobacteria Advisory For Schoolhouse Pond

  

On August 10, 2022 the Brewster Health Department, in collaboration with the Brewster Ponds Coalition and a recommendation by the MA Department of Public Health, posted a Cyanobacteria Health Advisory at Schoolhouse Pond Town Landing due to a visible algal bloom indicative of elevated levels of Cyanobacteria at the landing and surrounding areas.   Testing of the pond will continue on a weekly basis to monitor existing cyanobacteria levels. Out of an abundance of caution and until further notice, people and pets should avoid contact with the pond water in those areas where a visible algal bloom is present.
