Today, Jacobs Pond in Norwell will be chemically treated to control nuisance aquatic vegetation.
As a result, the pond will be closed today (Thursday) to swimming, boating and fishing.
In addition, water from Jacobs Pond should not be used for watering lawns, shrubs or plants of any kind for the next 90 days.
Signs will be posted around the pond’s shoreline warning of these temporary water use restrictions.
Additional chemical applications are expected throughout the summer.
Town officials say the pond will not be closed during these additional applications; however, the irrigation restriction will remain in effect.
The work is being performed for the town by Aquatic Control Technology of Sutton, MA.
