Dead Animal Pick-up at 4 Charles St

CLOSED Case Closed. Case Noted. Boston Parks and Recreation Department began draining the Public Garden Lagoon today because the water has become unsafe for wildlife, particularly the ducks. It will take 2-3 days for the lagoon to fully drain. The unusually hot, dry summer has encouraged bacteria and algae growth. What’s more, the Swan Boats are on hold this year. Their paddle wheels introduce oxygen into the lagoon and create turbulence that discourages unwanted growth. We engaged a lake and pond management company to treat the lagoon throughout the month of July. When we saw little improvement after weeks of testing and treatment, we made the decision to fully drain the lagoon, remove sediment at the bottom, and refill it. The condition of the lagoon poses no threat to humans. - 2 months ago #101003391652
