Abstract

Stormwater runoff often causes contamination of surface water bodies. The Living Systems Laboratory (LSL) is a series of natural processes that treats water from the Blackstone Canal. This project evaluated the capacity of this system to treat stormwater. Flowrates were measured and lab analyses were performed on water samples collected from the LSL and surrounding water bodies to determine treatment efficiency. Design of the current system was evaluated and recommendations were provided for increasing the capacity of the LSL.
