Abstract

This project recalculated the safe yield of the Ten Mile River Basin in the City of Attleboro, MA, and evaluated ways to enhance this yield. The Bungay River was selected to transfer water to the main reservoir within the city's supply system and evaluated as a source. A computer model was developed to estimate the safe yield and examine the effects of transferring this flow. Preliminary designs for a pump station and cost estimates were developed for this transfer.
