Fall 2005

MA Division of Marine Fisheries collected a round (September 28) of water samples and results showed coliform bacterial contamination.

  • Survey temporary bench marks to permanent bench mark
  • Further evaluation of tidal flushing
Hired (at CZM expense) a coastal geology firm (Applied Coastal) to
  • collect additional data
  • develop RMA model
  • analyze how to correct problem
  • determine proper size of opening
  • how to control shoaling on either end of opening

With now three years of water quality data Farm Pond became eligible to enter into MA Estuaries Project.
