Watershed Surveys

Over 70 volunteers and technical leaders contributed their time and effort to survey the watershed of Milton Three Ponds. A total of 158 different erosion sites were identified that have the potential to adversely impact water quality.  Of these, 106 (67.1%) are on residential properties, and over half of these sites have a low impact on water quality, and can be fixed for a relatively low cost with roof drip line trenches, infiltration steps, rain gardens, or natural vegetation buffers planted along the water’s edge.

Surveyors found that homeowners around Milton Three Ponds are aware and/or are becoming educated in preventing surface runoff to improve our water quality. Many waterfront owners have already installed effective erosion control measures.
