Weekly Pond Watch Reports

Every week in the warmer months and every two weeks in the winter, weather permitting, Pond Watch volunteers collect water quality data from fifteen ponds around Falmouth (Fewer ponds are sampled during the winter due to access issues).

Until recently, the data were reported in a table in The Falmouth Enterprise each week. Currently, FWs scientists are working on developing a more meaningful way of sharing the data with the public in the newspaper and elsewhere.

In January of 2016, a FWS board member who is a local scientist began looking at the ten years of data Pond Watch has collected. We expect to provide some preliminary results to the public by early fall.

In the meantime, interested citizens can view weekly and bi-weekly reports with tabular data and a short summary by clicking on the links in the table below.
