[ARCHIVED] Public Health Advisory: MILL POND Closed

Rotary Park Pond Public Health Advisory

Date of Record: August 13, 2020 - Rotary Park Pond in Shrewsbury is closed until further notice because of laboratory testing showing high levels of E. Coli.

During our routine seasonal weekly water quality monitoring of select bodies of water in Shrewsbury, high levels of E. Coli were detected in MILL POND.

The Worcester Division of Public Health (WDPH) and the Town of Shrewsbury’s Board of Health has ordered the pond closed. The pond will remain closed until further laboratory tests reveal acceptable and safe water quality limits.

Town officials advise individuals and their pets to avoid contact with the pond, including fishing, until further notice.

MILL POND is located off of Old Mill Pond Road in Shrewsbury.
