The goal of this project was to understand the function and effectiveness of stormwater treatment basins in removing contaminants from highway runoff in the Wachusett Watershed. Fieldwork and lab analysis of runoff, soil, groundwater and surface water samples were conducted to determine levels of specific conductance, solids, and metals. Additionally, an optimal stormwater basin was designed through modeling and low-cost alternatives were made to the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to improve the current basin in place.
