Pond Lab Report, June 2014

Per New England Environmental Inc., the clarity of water remains good. The phosphorus readings taken at the pond bottom and pond surface were 32.9 and 27.4 micrograms/liter (μg/L) respectively. Expressed as milligrams/liter (mg/L), the readings were .0329 and .0274, the result was the lowest we’ve had in 3 years. This year’s improvement is likely attributable to the generally cooler temperatures and increased rainfall. Also the pre-season work and annual clean-up was very helpful.

July sampling results forthcoming.
