Week of October 26, 2017: Water Quality Needs Improvement
In a great effort by citizen science volunteers, water quality reports for the week have been released. However, the results show us that residents must keep working hard to improve local water quality. Highly elevated levels of bacteria have been detected at Easton's Stream and Bailey's Brook as well as raised levels of bacteria at 3rd beach. Given our mild fall, elevated bacteria levels are especially problematic as there are still regular swimmers and beach-goers this late into the season.
