Clean Water Challenge

What is the Clean Water Challenge?

The Clean Water Challenge (formerly the Clean River Design Challenge) is a statewide competition that engages undergraduate and graduate level students in the generation of innovative water pollution solutions.  For the 2021-2022 CWC, teams will be tasked with reducing / removing E. coli and/or excess nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen). Teams may focus on either or both pollutants, and they can pursue prevention and /or removal strategies.
