Testing conducted last week (9/11/15) confirmed the reappearance of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) at Willis Lake. The advisory has been reinstituted. Residents should avoid contact with the water until two consecutive samples show levels below state guidelines.

Testing by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health will occur this week and results will be posted upon receipt.
