The goal of this project was to determine stormwater and nutrient loadings and design a best management practice (BMP) to reduce the spread of harmful invasive plant species within Coes Pond, an urban pond in Worcester, Massachusetts. This project involved sampling of stormwater outfalls around Coes Pond and modeling of stormwater and nutrient loadings using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and hydrologic software. These steps culminated in the design of a rain garden to reduce nutrient loadings entering Coes Pond.
