Abstract

This project involves the development of a water quality control and improvement plan for Green Hill Pond in Worcester for the purpose of addressing concerns associated with a high estimated phosphorus load entering the pond. Samples of pond water, overland runoff, and in-pond sediments were collected and analyzed in the laboratory. Results were analyzed to determine the amount and sources of nutrients entering the pond. Recommendations to improve water quality included a rain garden, water quality swale, and public education.
