Massachusetts Military Reservation, Mass. — An update on seasonal surface water sampling to verify Snake Pond's safety for recreational use will be one of the main topics of an informational social on the Snake Pond beach in Sandwich from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday.

The annual "Ice Cream & Information" event is co-hosted by the Impact Area Groundwater Study Program and the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence (AFCEE) Installation Restoration Program. This informal "one-on-one" session is designed to answer questions from nearby residents and other recreational users of the pond regarding the ongoing MMR environmental investigation and cleanup activities related to Snake Pond.

Representatives from AFCEE, the Groundwater Study Program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Army Corps of Engineers will be available to answer questions.
