In 2007, Packard Development, the Conservation Law Foundation, UN HSC, and Gove Environmental Services partnered to negotiate a Brownfields redevelopment proposal that protected receiving water quality.  The proposal was accepted, and the current installation—which includes three franchise stores and is estimated to accommodate nearly 10,000 vehicles daily—uses porous asphalt parking lots and subsurface gravel wetlands as anchors of the stormwater management plan.  The development was completed in 2009 and UNHSC continues to monitor the active commercial site for overall stormwater quality performance.  Five years of monitoring has demonstrated that runoff from the site consistently surpasses that of the receiving stream, Pickering Brook.

In 2014 this seven year monitoing project concluded.  The final report can be downloaded here
