Downloadable Content

open in viewer

This Major Qualifying Project (MQP) reviewed the Best Management Practices (BMP) Accounting and Tracking Tool (BATT) for Cambridge to reduce its phosphorus loading to the Charles River. The study, in collaboration with Stantec, involved: calculation comparisons between BATT and regulations, sensitivity analysis of inputs, model validation, and application of the model to BMP design. Using findings from the sensitivity analysis, including input of infiltrating BMPs and ideal acreage distributions, the team redesigned Cambridge stormwater projects to produce optimal phosphorus reductions.
