Stow Town Beach closed for algae testing

The Stow Board of Health has put out this alert:

Stow Town Beach at Lake Boon closed until further testing for Algae

Based on a visual examination at the Town Beach on Friday morning 8/23/19, by the Board of Health, it appears that an algae bloom could be starting.  Testing will be performed, but as a precautionary measure the beach will be closed for swimming to humans and pets until confirmation is received by the State.

We hope with the cooler weather forecast for the next few days that this potential threat will dissipate in time for the Water Carnival beach events on August 31.
