Abstract

The source identification of phosphorous in the Merrimack River, within the town of Tyngsborough's borders, is needed to satisfy a requirement for Tyngsborough's Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit. This report includes methods for mitigation of phosphorus runoff, selection of sites potentially contributing excess phosphorus, methods to address current elevated phosphorus levels, and methods to conduct phosphorous data collection. The goal of this report is to provide the first step towards analyzing suspected key problem sites.
