AUTHORS: Heather Cormier, Cape Cod Commission

ABSTRACT: Stormwater runoff can create significant discharge of scour and sediment buildup, leading to pollution of local waterways and contamination of drinking water. Cape Cod’s already sensitive coastal resources need stormwater solutions that include landscape management alternatives to help mitigate nutrient and pollutant loading. An assessment of existing vegetation was conducted within Massachusetts’ Route 6 right-of-way from the Sagamore Bridge in Sandwich to the Orleans/Eastham Rotary. Using a combination of high-resolution aerial photography and LiDAR data, plant species were classified, invasive species were located, and density and health of vegetation was evaluated for future landscape management planning.
