The Gibbons School in Stoughton will be sporting new stormwater management features thanks to a recent grant proposal.

Parking lot and roadway runoff from the Gibbons School property in Stoughton currently discharges to Woods Pond and a small tributary of Steep Hill Brook with little or no treatment to remove contaminants such as sand, fertilizers, oil and bacteria. The $137,000 in funds recently announced by the Baker Administration, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the US Environmental Protection Agency will allow the school grounds to be upgraded with modern stormwater controls.

The Grant was written by the Watershed Association in collaboration with the Stoughton Engineering Department. The project grew out of an earlier collaboration between the two organizations in which NepRWA secured grant funding to evaluate opportunities to reduce polluted stormwater runoff by retrofitting town owned roadways and parking lots.
