Abstract

Lake Wickaboag in West Brookfield, MA is facing the water quality issues of sedimentation and excess phosphorus. For this MQP, water samples from five locations along two tributaries were analyzed and the location along Sucker Brook at Shea Road was selected for a best management practice. A bioretention area and vegetated filter strip were designed to remove sediments before they enter the water system. A 604(b) Grant was explored as a funding option for a future comprehensive watershed analysis.
