Pursuant to the MS4 permit, communities must reduce phosphorus from stormwater runoff by a prescribed amount. This process can be challenging. In collaboration with the Charles River Watershed Association, we conducted interviews, site visits and distributed a survey to understand the challenges communities face in assessing phosphorus reduction. Using this data, we developed recommendations to help communities in the Charles River Watershed streamline the process of receiving phosphorus reduction credit for existing structural BMPs. Our final recommendations took the form of a 6 page information booklet, which highlighted different approaches that can help communities be successful in phosphorus reduction.
