Drawdown Notice

October 15, 2023

Reminder to all that the annual drawdown starts Oct 15, and will continue until the winter draw down level of 3 feet on or around December 1st.

 

The drop in the water level during the winter months allows property owners to do maintenance to their waterfront, including docks, walls, and beaches. It also helps with weed control.

Cyanobacteria Warning

June 1, 2023

***EDIT: Warning lifted June 8, 2023

A cyanobacteria WARNING (ADVISORY) has been issued for Monomonac, Rindge. Samples collected and reviewed on today 1 June had cyanobacteria (Dolichospermum) in concentrations up to 3 million cells/mL in areas of highest observed accumulations. Advisories are issued when cell counts exceed 70,000 cells/mL. NHDES advises lake users to not wade or swim in the water during an advisory. Please also keep pets and livestock out. The advisory is not based on a toxin evaluation and is intended as a precautionary measure for short term exposure. 

 

NHDES will resample in a week. I will reach out to you before then for updates. If you have information on where accumulated material is being observed at that time, please let us know to guide our sampling efforts. Advisories remain active until the bloom subsides.   

 

To the health officer or other official responsible for posting signs, please post our red cyanobacteria advisory signs at all public access points. Please let me know if you do not have any to post or if you need replacements. 

 

Please forward this email to other residents / community members who need this information. If they would like to be added to the email distribution list, please have them sign up through this form to be directly included on future communications from NHDES. To sign up for Weekly Statewide Bloom Reports select the “Healthy Swimming Updates” email list.
