Most urban developments are faced with the problem of dealing with stormwater runoff, including treatment and recharge. The Lowland Industrial Park in Holliston, MA, was used as a typical site to evaluate hydrology and recharge potential using map overlays, the TR-55 methodology, an investigation of the existing drainage infrastructure, and the design of a stormwater treatment and recharge system. This project was developed in conjunction with the Charles River Watershed Association and can be used as a model for similarly developed areas. The final recommendations represent an effective stormwater management plan for Lowland Industrial Park.
