Sneaking out early on a Friday? The water at Wollaston Beach awaits. Local pond is closed

Description

Houghton's Pond in Milton is closed to swimming Friday due to high bacteria levels.

Wollaston Beach, which had been closed at the beginning of the week, is open.

The state Department of Conservation and Recreation posts twice-daily water quality test results for beaches and ponds under its purview at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on the Mass.gov website.

Department officials said the technology currently available takes 24 hours to return results, meaning by the time the posting goes up, the information is not current. Residents are encouraged to wait for 24 hours after a closure posting before checking back to see if a swimming area has reopened.

Closure notices are posted at the individual locations.

All city-managed ponds and beaches in Quincy are open.

Nantasket Beach in Hull and Wollaston Beach in Quincy are among 15 metro and greater Boston beaches whose overall water safety scores are included in Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s 2023 Beach Season Water Quality Report Card.

Do you worry about the bacteria? How is the water quality at Quincy and Hull beaches in general?
