Local boards of health in Massachusetts are required by state statutes and regulations to perform many important and crucial duties relative to the protection of public health, the control of disease, the promotion of sanitary living conditions, and the protection of the environment from damage and pollution. These requirements reflect the legislature’s understanding that many critical health problems are best handled by the involvement of local community officials familiar with local conditions.
PLUNKETT RESERVOIR HEALTH ADVISORY IS RESCINDED
The public health advisory for Plunkett Reservoir is now rescinded (removed). Recent testing results have shown algae concentrations at Plunkett are below the state mandated advisory threshold. Therefore normal use of the lake may be resumed.
