In response to elevated bacteria levels, the Good Harbor Creek will remain closed until we are able to identify and remediate the pollution source.
The city will not conduct weekly tests until we are ready to reopen the bathing area. Targeting testing of the marsh system will occur during the appropriate weather conditions (short duration heavy rainfall events).
The Health Department has been actively working with the administration to identify the issue. Assistant Director of Public Health, Rachael Belisle-Toler, has been coordinating with engineering firm Woodard & Curran throughout the Spring and Summer to conduct an in-depth investigation. Please contact the Gloucester Health Department at 978-325-5262 with any questions.
