Tisbury Great Pond report is subject of public meeting Tuesday


West Tisbury and Chilmark will hold a public forum on the Mass Estuaries report on Tisbury Great Pond at 5:30 pm, Tuesday, in the Chilmark selectmen’s meeting room.

The report, released in May following years of bureaucratic wrangling over costs, is the long-awaited result of a study that began in 2005. The study has confirmed low but significant nitrogen levels in one of Martha’s Vineyard’s largest estuary systems.
