Signs of Improvement, but Algal Bloom Persists in Fort Pond

Bacteria levels continued to drop at some Concerned Citizens of Montauk testing sites this week thanks to drier weather earlier in the week, but harmful blue-green algae continue to affect Fort Pond. Testing results for the week showed a bloom only at the southern end of the pond; concentrations at the north end dropped below the State Department of Environmental Conservation's threshold for harmful blooms but remain at high risk. To be safe, people are still urged to avoid contact with the water until further notice.

CBD, for the Dogs — and the Dollars

CBD, a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, is legal as an oil, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved it as an additive to foods meant for human consumption.
