An Inventory and Assessment of Data Requirements for the Development of a Coes Pond Watershed Management Plan 2015 WPI IQP report by Alex Venditti,Brian Flynn,Edward Giles,Ryan Loucks. Utilizing local and state resources, the authors built and analyzed an inventory of physical documents from stakeholders, and data layers from MassGIS archives, focusing on what data are available, and what remain to be collected, in order to support the task force. The results from this project can be used to assist the Coes Zone Task Force, and other organizations and individuals, in their goal to revitalize Coes Pond, and its encompassing watershed. https://web.wpi.edu/Pubs/E-project/Available/E-project-060115-111320/unrestricted/An_Inventory_and_Assessment_of_Data_Requirements_for_the_development_of_a_Coes_Pond_Watershed_Management_Plan.pdf

Coes Pond Stormwater Management 2015 WPI MQP report by Adam Weis Brendan Kling. The goal of this project was to determine stormwater and nutrient loadings and design a best management practice (BMP) to reduce the spread of harmful invasive plant species within Coes Pond. This project involved sampling of stormwater outfalls around Coes Pond and modeling of stormwater and nutrient loadings using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and hydrologic software. These steps culminated in the design of a rain garden to reduce nutrient loadings entering Coes Pond. https://web.wpi.edu/Pubs/E-project/Available/E-project-042617-131200/unrestricted/Coes_Stormwater_MQP_BK_AW_CP17.pdf
