074 The One Where Every Drop Counts - Scaling UP! H2O

Water, Water everywhere…  Well, is it really?  As a Water Treatment Professional, we have a professional responsibility to look after this valuable resource.  It’s not just a responsibility, it is in the DNA of our job.  Water Treatment is the original “Green” profession.  We were Green before anybody ever thought about being Green, even Kermit.

If we do our jobs properly, we have a tremendous opportunity to reduce the amount of water our systems use.  And that’s being Green no matter how you define “Being Green”

  1. Utilizing the smallest amount of resources possible
  2. Saving money by reducing the amount used

Our guest today is Kathy Nguyen of The Cobb County Water System.  Cobb county is a suburb of Atlanta, GA.  Join me as I speak with Kathy about water and get some ideas of what we can do to be more green.  No matter how you define it.
