This project quantified the contaminants in stormwater runoff flowing into two on-site ponds at the EcoTarium museum in Worcester, MA in order to design effective Best Management Practices (BMPs). Samples from various locations were collected and tested over multiple rain events. It was found that the contaminants of greatest concern in the stormwater runoff were total phosphorus and pathogens. BMPs for the EcoTarium were designed to primarily treat these contaminants with minimal site impact.
