Stoughton Pond Rec Area & Boat Launch Closed for the Season

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, North Springfield Lake

The cyanobacteria bloom was assessed at Stoughton Pond today by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff.

The algae bloom continues to persist and as a result Stoughton Pond Recreation Area and the Stoughton Pond boat launch will be closed for the season on August 28th, 2016. 

All water based recreational activities will remain restricted until the algae bloom has passed. The restrictions will be lifted when water quality sampling results show the cyanobacteria bloom has passed. 

The East and West Access will remain open to land based recreational activities. For further information please contact the North Springfield Lake Project Office at 802-886-2775
