Do you live in the area? Wakeby Pond is not polluted. Kyack is done on all ponds and lakes and even the ocean rivers. What are you looking for?

Mashpee Wakeby Pond is a lovely large lake which is clean with great swimming and boating from sandy beaches. Great fishing including trout too. Quite a bit of the shore is conservation land. I have many waterfront homes available on lots of Cape cod lakes priced from the 300's with water access homes and cottages priced from about 200k up. Let me know if I can help you.

Not polluted, yes swimming and kyaking is allowed.
However, I'd prefer the ocean for the cleanest water after August 1st, the algee growth harbors bacteria in all Cape Cod mother handed that to me and I have as well to my children in Mashpee.... The town checks their ponds frequently and the info is available to the public.
check out local Cape cod info on my website www.
