Crosby Brook Restoration Study (Webinar 6)

The Crosby Brook Restoration Study Project was a collaborative effort between the Town of Brattleboro, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation to address roadway drainage and water quality issues within the Crosby Brook watershed as part of a State of Vermont Federal Highway Transportation Enhancement (TE) Grant. The project focused on discharges along the Route 5 and Interstate Route 91 corridors in the vicinity of Crosby Brook – a 303(d) impaired waterway listed for sediment pollution and habitat alterations due to sedimentation, channelization and buffer loss. The project included a comprehensive study of the existing public storm water infrastructure with identification, evaluation and ranking of potential stormwater treatment practices (STPs). A selection and justification process was used to identify the most cost-effective and environmentally beneficial STPs for specific areas.

Recommendations were provided for transport oriented STP designs, permitting and implementation phasing for three project areas along Route 5 and Interstate 91. Additional recommendations focused on stream cor­ridor and buffer improvements throughout the upper watershed based on problems identified under previous geomorphic assessments.
