Abstract

This project assesses water quality in the Nashua River mainstem and Pepperell Pond, in Pepperell, Massachusetts. Water quality testing and flow modeling were used to assess various nutrient loadings and explores means of remediation. Through water quality analysis, mass balances, and point and nonpoint loading models, it determines methods for reducing nutrient levels in the pond, as well as developing a management plan to control nuisance plants and improve and maintain water quality in the ensuing years.
