Mathisen, Paul P.
This goal of this project was to create a stormwater management plan for the West Boylston subbasin in the Wachusett Reservoir watershed. Existing conditions were determined using field observations, GIS mapping, laboratory testing, and pollutant loading calculations. Computer modeling predicted the effectiveness of potential improvements and solutions were prioritized through a weighting system. The management plan included conceptual designs for retrofitting structural and non-structural best management practices, including bioretention and a pet waste program, to improve the subbasin's stormwater infrastructure.
