MPA 319 Grant Update

It is always exciting to see more progress with the grant! This is Site #1 which is a Gabion Wier with sediment trap underneath. This will filter the nutrients in the water coming down off the hill before the water gets discharged into the lake. The annual pollutant removal of this site is 1,275 lbs. of Total Suspended Solids, 1.48 lbs. Phosphorous and 6.15 lbs. of Nitrogen.
The MPA would like to thank the Mass. Department of Environmental Protection for the 319 NPS Grant as well as the Sutton and Douglas Towns and Highway Departments for all their work making the upgrades possible!
