2021 Current Issue

Water Management and Climate Change

For the 2021 Current Issue, Mass Envirothon teams will investigate a wide range of water issues in their home communities, and look at how these issues interact and are changing as climate change accelerates.  Teams will

  • investigate the management of water supply, wastewater, and stormwater in their communities, and how these critical functions are being affected by changing climate.
  • consider water’s role in the ecosystem as well as human uses.  Connections between water and forest, biodiversity, and soil resources must be part of their investigations.
  • identify a critical issue in their community and propose the best way to address it.
