The goal of our project was to provide recommendations to the Worcester City Council members and the Water Division employees to reduce the overall risk of drinking water contamination. We used first-hand observations, interviews, case studies, and public records to determine the most vulnerable areas of the drinking water system. These areas included land use, water treatment, water distribution, emergency procedures, department budgeting and a water quality comparison between Worcester and similar towns. Then we developed cost-effective recommendations to reduce the risk of a contamination. This report aims to improve public safety by preventing such an incident from occurring.
