Town Wide Water Study
The Town of Leicester in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and WPI embarked on a town-wide water study during the fall of 2015 and the spring of 2016. Students from WPI's Water Resource Outreach Center worked alongside DEP and the Town's water districts to develop two analytical reports with findings and recommendations to improve the quality and quantity of water in the Town along with two informational videos.  Moving forward, the Town will be working with the water districts to implement the recommendations as appropriate to ensure quality drinking water for the Town of Leicester's current and future residents.
