Update - Cyanobacteria Advisory Removed for Schoolhouse Pond and Lower Mill Pond

On August 26, 2022, the Cyanobacteria Advisories at the Schoolhouse Pond public landing and Lower Mill Pond (Gristmill location and Lower Mill Pond Beach Association Kayak launch area) were REMOVED by the Brewster Health Department in collaboration with the Brewster Ponds Coalition and Lower Mill Pond Beach Association after two plus weeks of monitoring and water sampling. The Cyanobacteria algal levels have dropped to a low risk level for swimming and other recreational water activities per confirmatory tests conducted by the Barnstable County Laboratory and observations of the lack of visible blooms in accordance with the MA Department of Public Health recommendations. Limited monitoring will continue over the next month.
