  • The Water Innovation Network for Sustainable Small Systems (WINSSS) brings together a national team of experts to transform drinking water treatment for small water systems (SWS) in part by leveraging existing relationships with industry through the Massachusetts Water Cluster. WINSSS facilitates a clear pathway for innovation implementation through novel approaches to treating grouped contaminants such as organic carbon, trace organics, disinfection by-products, and nitrogenous compounds, pilot demonstrations of promising technologies, standardized testing requirements for multiple states, tools to simplify system operations, and an extensive outreach.
  • The Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center works with natural and cultural resource managers in the Northeast and Midwest regions to apply future climate scenarios to decision making and co-produce information, and tools for climate change adaptation. each contributing significant and unique expertise to the Northeast Region's climate challenge.
