MMSD Staff Win Scholarship; Host Wisconsin Water Thinkers
The district is in the early stages of developing public education programming, and this year has already seen two events at the district related to education. Early this year, MMSD Pollution Prevention staff were awarded the LIFT SEE IT Scholarship to research strategies and tools used by other treatment plants around the country, for community education and outreach.
On March 13, MMSD hosted the WI Water Thinkers Network Gathering. The Water Thinkers Network consists of educators and outreach specialists who develop programs around deep thinking to solve some of the world's most difficult water problems. Participants toured the facility, shared experiences and ideas around water education programs, and enjoyed a keynote speech delivered by Chief Engineer and Director Michael Mucha on the topic of One Water.
