Currently, the Mill Brook is a heavy carrier of sediment into Salisbury Pond in Institute Park. Restoration of Salisbury Pond to its original state is the eventual goal of the Mill Brook Task Force. The purpose of this project was to determine the major sources of sediment going into the Mill Brook and to examine current sediment control methods. Based on this information, solutions to the problem of sedimentation have been recommended.
