The Town of Wilmington, Massachusetts, implemented a number of measures that are part of low-impact development in order to collect and treat storm water that previously flowed directly into nearby Silver Lake, which ultimately drains to a tributary of the troubled Ipswich River. The project, now being monitored to evaluate its performance, is expected to benefit the lake as well as the river.
