MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER DATA

In November 2020, the City of Cambridge began collecting and analyzing COVID-19 data from municipal wastewater which can serve as an early indicator of increased COVID-19 infections in the city. The Cambridge Public Health Department and Cambridge Department of Public Works are using technology developed by Biobot, a Cambridge based company, and partnering with the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA). This Cambridge wastewater surveillance initiative is being funded through a $175,000 appropriation from the Cambridge City Council.
