Hi Marianne,

Look at the the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority toxics reduction
program at http://www.mwra.state.ma.us/sewer/html/trac.htm.  Much of it
looks wastewater oriented, but the MWRA also provides water to metro Boston.

Also, the City of Lowell has just sought certification to the ISO 14001
standard for its Wastewater Treatment Department, which is waste not water
supply but may be of interest.  Contact Matt Donohue at

I hope this is helpful.  Good Luck!
