Watershed Recommendations
Conduct more extensive surveys of non-native aquatic and wetland species, particularly                                   DEP '98
downstream from recorded locations, to determine the extent of infestation.
Spot treatments should be conducted to control existing populations of non-natives.                                      DEP '98
A program to manage more extensive plant infestations should be implemented.                                             DEP '98
Discourage methods that could result in fragmentation (cutting, raking, etc.).                                           DEP '98
Encourage education of invasive plants/prevention (e.g., signage at boat access).                                        DEP '98
Coordinate with DEM to generate quality assured lakes data and conduct surveys to                                        DEP '98
better determine the lake trophic and use support status, and identify sources of impairment.

Watershed-Wide Recommendations:
1. Develop a consistent water quality monitoring program.                                              CRSP '99
   establish an ongoing volunteer sampling and monitoring program associated with recreation areas
   encourage development of a minimum ongoing river sampling program
2. Reduce urban, suburban runoff and rural NPS.                                                        CRSP '99
   implement improved street sweeping programs in every community to reduce pollutants in stormwater
   identify demonstration sites for innovative stormwater BMPs
   pass local stormwater ordinances/bylaws that require all developments to comply with MA stormwater standards
   reduce pollutants in agricultural runoff
3. Reduce soil erosion and sedimentation throughout the watershed.                                     CRSP '99
   identify and map severe erosion sites in the watershed
   assist communities with the adoption of erosion and sediment control bylaws
   encourage streambank restoration projects similar to the bioengineering projects being undertaken by FRCOG on the mainstem and on the
   Mill River in Whately

Sampling conducted in 1996 indicated low nutrient and ionic concentrations. Secchi disk depth was 4.8 meters; DEP '96
pH values were neutral and alkalinity relatively low. Aquatic macrophyte density seems to have
increased slightly; nutrient levels have remained consistent. Several aquatic invasives (Eurasian milfoil
and several pondweeds) were observed.
Sediment sampling revealed organochlorine pesticides (DDE and DDD) within the L-EL (Lowest Effect             DEP '96
Level); or within a level that can be tolerated by the majority of benthic organisms.
Sediments collected were comprised of 7% solids. Both replicate samples exceeded the S-EL (Severe Effect DEP '96
 Level) for TKN, by a factor of 3. Four metals (As, Cu, Pb, Zn) and TP fell between the L-EL and S-EL.
See DEP '96 for additional data.

Watershed Recommendations
There are 343 miles of road in the watershed; 211 miles are unpaved.
1. Dirt road BMP education, maintenance, and installation to reduce erosion and sediment deposition          BRPC '97
    from road runoff and maintenance.
   The MWI is funding a GNOI for dirt roads work.
    BRPC received funds from the s.319 grant program to develop a Dirt Roads Maintenance Manual,
   and to install dirt road BMPs in three communities.
   BRPC received 604b funding to assess the conditions of dirt roads in the Farmington Basin (FY2001 604b)
2. Conduct public education regarding forestry BMPs                                                          BRPC '97
3. Develop and distribute a watershed newsletter to residents. [Ongoing- MWI funds]                          BRPC '97
4. Modify and strengthen local bylaws, and encourage open space and comprehensive planning.                  BRPC '97
5. Implement local UST registration program                                                                  BRPC '97
6. Pursue quantification of road salt problem (in private wells and Farmington River.)                       BRPC '97
7. Monitor progress of MHD garage in Otis (Clean States program)                                             BRPC '97

Lake recommendations from DWM DEP Water Quality Assessment '97-'98
1. MA DPH should review the results of EPA study of PCB contamination & adjust fish consumption advisory as needed.
2. Continue monitoring the GE Company Pittsfield PCB cleanup activities and compile results into comprehensive report.
3. Review and Evaluate EPA data on streambed sediments and river bank soils from Dalton to Sheffield to determine relevance to
impoundments on the mainstem.
4. More extensive surveys need to be conducted for non-native aquatic species, particularly downstream from confirmed locations.
5. Spot treatments (hand-pulling or herbicide application) should be conducted to prevent the further spread of non-natives.
6. Determine the extent of distribution of noxious aquatics and wetland species; reduce impairment; control further spread.
7. Boat access areas should be posted with signage regarding the problem of non-natives and how to prevent spreading these species.
8. Review the D/F studies that have been conducted for Onota Lake, Richmond Pond, Stockbridge Bowl, Prospect Lake, and Mansfield Lake.
9. Determine what D/F recommendations have been implemented.
9. Coordinate with DEM to generate quality assured lakes data and conduct intensive lakes surveys to determine trophic status, use support
status, and sources of impairment.

2. Develop generic protocols for sampling and encourage volunteer monitors.
3. Extend monitoring into the tributaries.
4. Increase capacity of volunteer monitoring groups.
5. Provide financial and laboratory support to local Stream Teams.
6. Provide education on NPS to local officials and watershed residents. Develop NEMO presentation.
7. Promote capacity building assistance to local environmental groups.
8. Develop model programs to deal with pollution sources such as USTs.
9. Identify funding sources for shared conservation agents, health agents, wetlands and planning circuit riders, etc.
10. Monitor stormwater runoff in developed areas.
11. Increase capacity for local officials to enforce existing regulations.
12. Develop operation and maintenance plans for catch basins and storm drains.
13. Provide training to DPWs on Dirt Road BMPs.
14. Identify funding sources for septic tank inspection, maintenance and upgrades, in second homes.
15. Implement and maintain structural and non-structural BMPs
16. Educate watershed residents and local officials about NPS BMPs.
17. Secure funding from DFA to construct manure storage facilities, stream fencing and alternative watering,
18. Prioritize funding for the Town of Monterey to construct a salt shed at the DPW.
19. Improve or install stormwater infiltration devices on commercial or industrial sites with over 5,000 feet of impervious surface.
     Focus on Housatonic mainstem urban areas.
20. Implement bank stabilization projects in agricultural areas. Focus on Lower Main Stem Housatonic, Green River and the Konkapot River.
21. Restore or create vegetated riparian buffers in urban areas such as Pittsfield, Lee and Great Barrington.
22. Protect and enhance large wetland complexes, such as around Woods Pond.
23. Investigate the use of community septic systems in lake communities, surrounding the largest recreational lakes, and in concentrated
     village areas such as New Marlborough and Egremont.
24., Encourage the use of alternative/innovative septic systems, especially near surface waters and wetlands.
25. Evaluate decentralized wastewater management options in areas of known or suspected septic problems.
26. Conduct economic analysis of infrastructure options (e.g., dirt roads v. paved roads, protected open space v. new development)
27. Identify options for pre-treatment of stormwater prior to discharge into surface waters.

3. Support stormwater assessment project, conducted by BRPC with MWI funds (99-10/MWI).
   Implement recommendations from the report.
4. Continue to support comprehensive lake management planning.
5. Continue to support the projects to manage invasive plant species.
6. Continue to support LAPA-West.
7. Continue to support the implementation of s.319 funds at Onota Lake and Pontoosuc Lake.
8. Continue to encourage DEP staff in QAPP development and volunteer monitoring programs.



Recommendations from Stormwater Assessment in the Hoosic and Housatonic Watersheds.
   Berkshire Regional Planning Commission. 2000.
1. Develop implementation projects for dense residential areas. Stormwater is typically discharged
   directly into nearby lakes (e.g., Mansfield, Ashmere, Pontoosuc, Onota, etc.)
2. Inventory unpaved dirt roads for potential application of unpaved road BMPs. (Note: BRPC was awarded FY02 604b funds.)
3. Develop a stormwater stewards program for lakes and ponds associations. Information regarding residential property BMPs should be
    targeted toward watershed residents.
4. Implement stormwater diversion techniques at public boat ramps.
5. Encourage planting of vegetated buffers along shorelines and tributaries.
6. Collect water quality data related to stormwater problems.
7. Develop funding programs for stormwater infrastructure maintenance.
