Watershed Analysis- Carrabassett

Project Description: Carabassett Valley Sugarloaf Mountain Watershed Analysis

Owner: Town of Carrabassett Valley, Maine

Location: Carrabassett Valley, Maine

Project Team Walsh Engineering Associates, Inc. (Engineering Services)

Work Scope WEA was contracted by the Town of Carrabassett Valley to complete a stormwater analysis for the approximate 4,011-acre Sugarloaf Mountain watershed. Sugarloaf Mountain has experienced an increase in development in recent years within the watershed and the impact needs to be understood. The Town of Carrabassett Valley retained WEA to develop AutoCAD drawings and a hydrologic model to use as a planning resource when new developments are proposed within the watershed. WEA completed a three-phased project, which included data collection, site inventory of swales and culverts, and a Hydrologic analysis of the 4,000 acre watershed. At completion in 2016, the Town will have an updated watershed plan and hydrologic model of the watershed. This will provide the Town with a model that can be used to analyze the impact of any project proposed within the watershed.
