   Upper Broad Brook Reservoir is a small, 0.8 acre pond located in East Windsor, CT at East Windsor Park. The pond drains into Lower Broad Brook Reservoir via a pipe located in the east corner. The park's grass make up half of the shoreline while the other half is dense forest.
   The 2012 CAES IAPP survey found the presence of 4 species of aquatic plants. One was invasive, Myriophyllum spicatum (Eurasian watermilfoil). This was the most commonly found plant in the pond. It was found growing across the entire bottom of the pond.  Elodea nuttallii, a native, was the second mond common species. This plant was found growing in 2 large patches at either end of the pond and also two smaller patches in the center. The remaining species were found in low abundance: Ludwigia species, and Sagittaria species.
   The pond (Lower Broad Brook Reservoir) that Upper Broad Brook drains into was also surveyed in 2012.
