Williams College’s Class of 1966 Environmental Center is operating the first licensed rainwater collection and treatment system in the state of Massachusetts. We had no idea what we were getting in to, and we’re making up procedures, experiments, and solutions as we go. We’ve struggled with unidentified green goo, higher than expected operational costs, and a UV filtration system designed for a system 100 times larger than ours.
