Sam Tripp Brook Stormwater Project

The Buzzards Bay NEP is working with the Town of Westport to minimize environmental impacts from stormwater on Drift Road which goes into Sam Tripp Brook and then into the upper East Branch of the Westport River. In the fall of 2013, with a $20,000 grant from the Buzzards Bay NEP, an engineering firm is developing designs to reduce the volume and pollutant loading from the Drift Road stormwater runoff. The Westport Board of Selectmen and the Westport Water Resources Management Committee, with support from WRWA, are assisting Buzzards Bay NEP and engineering firm with this initiative. In this first phase of the effort, engineering designs will be developed to treat stormwater from the road. After the designs are developed, the Buzzards Bay NEP will work with the town to seek grant funds to implement the project.
