All towns and municipalities face the task of ensuring that public water systems have safe and adequate supplies of drinking water to protect the health and well-being of its consumers. Working with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the Town of Leicester, our project goal was to identify the challenges Leicester's three water districts face and provide an analysis for available improvements in order to meet the water quality standards and water demand in Leicester. Our recommendations provide short and long term goals working towards improving communication and efficiency of the districts' operations.
