Abstract

This project evaluated stormwater inputs to Lake Wickaboag, a 320 acre recreational lake in West Brookfield, Massachusetts. Total suspended solids and phosphorous in runoff were measured at three sites around the lake and the most problematic site identified. Best management practices for reducing these contaminant inputs were compared based on effectiveness, applicability and cost. An infiltration system was designed to control stormwater at the site of concern.
