Thompson, Robert W.
The goal of the project was to establish and evaluate the problems in Worcester County's wastewater and investigate what was being done to remedy the situation. Through many means of data collection: first hand interviews, budget analysis, and government document collection, we discovered key areas that are responsible for causing the problems Worcester County is facing. We concluded that there are two main issues from which all the problems in wastewater treatment stem. Budget cutbacks and labor shortages are crippling the MassDEP and EPA. All problems with the procedures and equipment in the environmental strike force can be traced back to these issues.
