Project Type MQP Submission date 2012-04-26 Authors Samuel A Bartlett, EV Allison Ruth Roche, EV Brendan Thomas Stitt, EV URN E-project-042612-123929 Title Flood Mitigation of Macomber's Way in Marshfield, Massachusetts Advisors Mathisen, Paul P., CE LePage, Suzanne, CE Availability unrestricted
Tidal flows in the English Salt Marsh flood over Macomberís Way daily, creating dangerous driving conditions. Two culverts allow flow to pass through the causeway, which exacerbates scour of marsh banks and vegetation. A design to mitigate erosion and flooding was developed through analysis of water elevations and culvert flowrates throughout a tidal cycle. The recommended design includes a road maintenance plan, the replacement of an existing culvert with a concrete box culvert, and future consideration of a third culvert.
