New This Week: The Future of Water
GWW SPOTLIGHT: Diana Rodriguez wants to hear from other Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) pros. The chemical engineer who is working to develop wastewater treatment plants is also hoping to create a virtual education program to advance WASH Initiatives. If you’ve had exposure to WASH programs, we’re hoping you can complete her survey on essential elements of a virtual WASH education program.
FUTURE OF WATER: GWW will roll out the 1-Minute “Future of Water” Video publicly next week, linking to a playlist of water technologies. If you don’t see yourself referenced, and believe you have a proven game-changer technology, give us a call.
SEEKING DISTRIBUTED AND SMALL SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES: GlobalWaterWorks regularly hears of small communities with BIG water needs. As part of the Water and Waste Management Conference, we are inviting more than 30,000 small and rural utilities in the U.S. and 650,000 villages in India to learn about small systems capable of supplying potable water and treating wastewater in isolation. To this end, we hope you will add your contact information and a sample video or brochure on your technology below.
