StormTreat System Installation at Elm Street, Kingston, Massachusetts
In October of 1994, four StormTreat Systems (STS) tanks were installed at Elm Street in Kingston, Massachusetts (see Figures 19.1 and 19.2). This site was identified as a significant stormwater pollution site by the Jones River Watershed Association. Prior to the STS installation, stormwater discharged directly to the Jones River from a 850 foot (259 m) length of road surface (Elm Street) and associated parking area at the Kingston Water Department building. This drainage area is estimated to contain 18,700 square feet, or 0.43 acres (1740 m2), of pavement. The StormTreat System is designed to capture and treat the first inches (12.7 mm) of runoff, i.e. the “first flush”.
