Cyanobacteria Advisory For Walkers Pond

On August 30, 2022 the Brewster Health Department, in collaboration with the Brewster Ponds Coalition, posted a Cyanobacteria Health Advisory at Walkers 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.
