Abstract:The Eel River Watershed is a relatively undeveloped coastal area within the Town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. As development increases, community members fear that increasing nitrogen loads will impact the precious natural resources and environment within the watershed and in downstream Plymouth Harbor. As a result, the Town has proactively developed a nutrient management program utilizing a combination of unique approaches to minimize nutrient loadings to the Plymouth Harbor Watershed. This paper describes the approaches evaluated, as well as technical analysis used by the Town to support proposed by-law provisions.
