The Massachusetts Water Resource Outreach Center (WROC) is a brand new Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) project center developed in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).
The WROC seeks to advance and strengthen the field of environmental education by:
1. providing an opportunity for WPI undergraduates to learn methods for and the importance of protecting water resources;
2. providing environmentally focused community projects to Massachusetts municipalities; and
3. expanding the capacity of MassDEP and area watershed associations to educate municipal officials and residents (from elementary age to senior citizens) on the importance of and best practices for water resource protection.
