Heavy rains hit the area this morning bringing rivers of water down the roads and from the watershed hillsides into Manchaug Pond. Let’s take a look at the completed site work made possible by the s.319 NonPoint Pollution Grant to filter all this stormwater:
This site work has been done to filter the stormwater of nutrients to improve your Manchaug Pond resource!
The project is funded by the EPA and MassDEP, spearheaded and administered by the Manchaug Pond Association, written with the help of engineers and environmental scientist at CEI, Inc, and matched with work performed cooperatively by MPA, and the Towns of Sutton and Douglas Highway Departments and Conservation Commissions.
Data was based on a watershed survey and water quality testing paid for by the Manchaug Pond Association and performed by CEI, Inc and Lycott Environmental Inc. for the MPA.
One more task to complete! We remain On Target, Below Budget and On Schedule!
