NH DES tested again today and unfortunately decided not to lift the Advisory. See official notice below ….
Province Lake was resampled today, 27 July 2023. The cyanobacteria density was low in all samples, however it was pouring during sampling so these are not representative samples. Folks reported continued bloom conditions to varying degrees around the lake earlier this week, so the advisory will remain active. Please keep signs posted at public access points. NHDES will arrange for sampling again next week. If people ask for updates on the current cyanobacteria advisory status, please direct them to the Healthy Swimming Mapper. If you click on the advisory symbol, you can see our most recent sampling date. When advisories are lifted, the red symbol for the waterbody will no longer be on the map.
Please forward this email to other residents / community members who need this information.
