Taylor Point Snapshot

The Buzzards Bay Coalition does not calculate a Bay Health Index score for Taylor Point because there is only data for two indicators at this location. The Bay Health Index is only calculated when there is data for at least three of five indicators: organic nitrogen, inorganic nitrogen, dissolved oxygen, algal pigments, and water clarity.
