Witch Pond Hydrogeologic Modeling

No ghosts, ghouls, or goblins detected here!

EP is working with the Town of Foxborough to evaluate water supply alternatives at their Witch Pond site. Witch Pond is an Atlantic White Cedar Swamp and NHESP Habitat for Rare Wildlife and Habitat of Rare Species. Several water supply sources are located near the Witch Pond Complex, including Foxborough, Mansfield and Attleboro.

EP, with McLane Environmental, developed a groundwater model which was used to determine the optimal pumping scenarios at the Foxborough wellfield to minimize impacts to the Witch Pond Complex. Model results document the complex hydrogeologic conditions, competing issues, and need for an Integrated Management Plan for wellfield pumping near Witch Pond.
