WPI Stormwater Management PlanPublic

It is recognized that there is a need for effective approaches to mitigate the impacts of stormwater runoff on surface water bodies. Creating a stormwater management plan and designing best management practices can reduce the impacts of this runoff. For this project, a stormwater management plan was developed for Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). The plan includes public education, detection of illicit discharges, construction and post construction site controls, and pollution prevention and best management practices (BMPs). After mapping the area with GIS and completing runoff calculations, a permeable pavement design was created and recommended as a BMP to reduce stormwater runoff from WPI. The design would significantly reduce the stormwater runoff discharge from the campus.
