The Taunton River watershed or Taunton River basin is made up of square miles (1, km 2) of rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands in southeastern Massachusetts, is the second largest watershed in the state. Also, it is a significant part of a much larger multi-state watershed, the Narragansett Bay watershed.. The Taunton River watershed is mostly situated in Bristol County.

Their overall operational costs and achieved effluent quality depend very much on the influent type, presence of priority pollutants, treatment technology and required effluent quality (for discharge or for recycle/reuse).

Figure shows different pathways for wastewater treatment and discharge. Centralized wastewater treatment methods can be classified as primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment. In primary treatment, physical barriers remove larger solids from the wastewater. Remaining particulates are then allowed to.

Both river basins and watersheds are areas of land that drain to a particular water body, such as a lake, stream, river or estuary. In a river basin, all the water drains to a large river. The term watershed is used to describe a smaller area of land that drains to a smaller stream, lake or wetland. There are many smaller watersheds within a.

The northern part of the Ten Mile and Taunton River basins is an area of about square miles within Norfolk, Plymouth, and Bristol Counties in southeastern Massachusetts.

The northern boundary of the area (plate 1) is the drainage divide separating these basins from that of the Charles, Neponset, and Weymouth River basins.

The western boundary is, for the most part, the divide separating. The River Basin Surveys concept marks a nationwide acceptance by archaeologists of a leading role in the conservationist movement.

If one agrees that an increment of archaeological knowledge has value, then it follows that every time a site is excavated ahead of inundation the act is one of preservation of a national as well as an intellectual resource. Examples of such studies are given in papers by Deininger (), Taunton River Basin wastewater discharge survey et al.

(), Ecker () and Fiacco and Ghaemi (). The second trend is devoted to the optimal location and design of a wastewater transportation and treatment system in such a way that all wastewaters of the river basin receive some priori specified : Yves Smeers, Daniel Tyteca.

In the Taunton River Basin, sampling results performed in July were published (see Figures and ), in the Taunton River Basin Hater Quality Management Plan ().

Data for the North River Basin Plan published in was presented in the North River Water Quality Survey Data also published in The primary water quality problems in the Taunton River watershed are driven by excess nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), droughts, and floods.

Wastewater effluents are major contributors to a variety of water pollution problems. Most cities of developing countries generate on the average 30–70 mm3 of wastewater per person per year.

Owing to lack of or improper wastewater treatment facilities, wastewater and its effluents are often discharged into surface water sources, which are receptacles for domestic and industrial wastes.

Excerpted from "An Atlas of Massachusetts River Systems." The Taunton River Basin is the second largest drainage area in Massachusetts.

The river has one of the flattest courses in the state with only a twenty foot difference along the forty mile length of the main stem. Its level terrain creates extensive wetlands throughout the basin. The City of Taunton Department of Public Works is authorized to discharge from the facility located at Taunton Wastewater Treatment Plant West Water Street Taunton, MA and one combined sewer overflow (CSO) to receiving water named Taunton River (Taunton River Basin - MA).

River discharge estimated from channel dimensions. Hydrol., Estimates ef flood discharges are often required at ungauged sites. A considerable amount of research h~s been devoted to the production of reliable flood estimates for ungauged catchments but.

Municipal point sources also accounted for most of the load in the main stem of the Taunton River. Multiple municipal wastewater discharges in the basin accounted for about 76 and 46 percent of the delivered loads of total phosphorus and total nitrogen, respectively, to Mount Hope Bay.

7 Executive Summary The Taunton River Watershed, located in the coastal plain of southeastern Massachusetts, is the state’s second largest watershed and is recognized for its rich ecological, recreational, and cultural resources.

The Taunton River begins at the confluence of the Matfield and Town Rivers in Bridgewater and runs over forty miles to Mount Hope Bay. It is considered “tidal” (with saltwater intrusion) for the last eighteen miles and is characterized by a gentle gradient, dropping only twenty feet.

With a watershed area encompassing approximately square miles, it is the second largest watershed in Massachusetts. It is also one of the flattest, with only a twenty-foot elevation drop along its forty-mile main stem length.
