FRIENDS OF GREEN HILL POND


According to the Salt Ponds Coalition, the overall aquatic health index for Green Hill Pond has declined from “Fair” in 2008-2009 to “Poor” in the most recent surveys. Shell fishing has been banned for over 20 years because the key contaminant, fecal coliform, is significantly above the DEM standard and has drifted higher. Swimmers need to avoid less flushed areas of the Pond because enterococci bacteria levels regularly exceed the DEM standard and, again, are drifting higher over time. Aquatic life is increasingly stressed by high and rising Nitrogen levels and low and declining dissolved oxygen levels. As Horsley Witten (2007) notes Green Hill Pond is ";impaired for Dissolved Oxygen (DO), a consequence of excessive nitrogen loading and poor tidal flushing".
