I know everyone is anxious to be back out on the Pond and is asking for updates. The North Reading Health Agent reports that they have received one good test on the levels of blue-green algae, and expect the required 2nd test to be performed this Friday. Once the Town has 2 consecutive good results they will immediately notify all of us of a lifting of the ban of use for Martin’s Pond. Please stay tuned – we hope to update you Friday afternoon.
