Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Milton, MA

Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area

Acting as a subconsultant to HKT Architects, BSC Group was responsible for permitting, erosion and sedimentation control, and stormwater management for the construction of a new bathhouse and providing universal access to DCR’s Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area.

BSC’s responsibilities included preparing the Notice of Intent and supporting DCR in obtaining an Order of Conditions from the Milton Conservation Commission, as well as preparing an erosion remediation design to reduce and slow the flow of stormwater through the access paths and to minimize the movement of gravel and stone dust during heavy storm events.

BSC’s design solution incorporated attractive and natural landscaping and a stormwater management program that maintains hiker and staff access.
