Abstract

For this project, we collaborated with the Town of Framingham to reduce the impacts of urbanization and stormwater runoff on the water quality of Farm Pond and its surrounding waterbodies. We completed a field investigation and designed a Best Management Practice to address the impacts of stormwater from the Cushing Memorial Park (CMP) stream, which may contribute to Farm Pond’s water quality impairments. Our recommendations included a design for a constructed wetland that would improve water quality while simultaneously providing an educational focal point for the community to enjoy.
