Watershed Consulting Associates, with local partner Aldrich + Elliott will be working with MS4 partners within the Sunderland and Indian Brook watersheds to develop a 20-year Flow Restoration Plan (FRP). The watersheds are urbanized, located within the Town and Village of Essex as well as some coverage in the Town of Colchester, and are classified as impaired. As a result, both watersheds are subject to a flow-based Total Maximum Daily Load(TMDL) for stormwater. Watershed will assess, model, and design stormwater retrofits for the Sunderland and Indian watersheds, as well as assess the relative benefit of projects toward meeting the MS4 partners required stormwater flow reductions. The goal of the project is to reduce high stormwater flows and improve the overall water quality in these urban streams.
