The WSSS Practicum is a chance for WSSS students to work in a small group on the integrated assessment
of a water resources case study. The goal of the practicum is to expose students to the techniques
and thought processes of integrated assessment in order to train them as researchers and professionals.
The 2012 WSSS Practicum is on the Aberjona River in Massachusetts and Aida Camp in Bethlehem. Prior years have explored water quality and related health concerns in the Mystic River and surrounding regions. The practicum is headed by Rusty Russell of the Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning Department and input from other participating WSSS faculty.tion Science and Policy
