Civil Engineering students from Professor Todd Brown’s Water Quality Engineering class are continuing to travel to the Mass. area wastewater treatment plants to perform settling tests to help the treatment plant operators model the performance of their settling tanks. 

Elijah Stewart, Joe Beauchesne, and Aly Ali performed tests at the Chicopee Wastewater Treatment Plant on October 11. Sarah Socolosky, Ali Alrayshan and Matt Murphy did the same tests at the Westfield Water Resource Recovery Facility on October 18. 

The students’ partnership with treatment plant operators and professional engineers is providing some real-world, hands-on learning opportunities that will give them something unique to talk about in their upcoming job interviews!
