Water Lily Quagmire; a Fictional Feathertale — pat morss

A real ornithologist wouldn’t make up a story like this, but it’s fun to imagine. As the water lilies spread, they become an impediment for the water birds.

The first convoy didn’t get any closer to open water
Even jumping off the rock, it was still a short runway
Hey – we could use a little help over here
How long do you think we’ll be stuck here?
I promise – I’ll be the first duckling to fly out
How ’bout you big guys clear a channel for us little guys?
Success! Why didn’t we think of this earlier?
It’s gotten entirely too crowded for fishing here
Since I’m one of the big guys, I’ll just fly out – because I can
Someone thinks the fishing is good here – think I’ll land
I had a hankering for salt water fish, anyway

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.
