WQA is now accepting proposals for educational presentations
The Water Quality Assn. (WQA) is accepting proposals for educational presentations to be made at WQA Aquatech USA 2015. Each proposal must include a title, abstract, presenter contact information, session format and time required for the presentation. While original works are strongly preferred, topics modified from materials previously presented at other venues will also be considered.
Speakers are being sought on the following topics:
Speakers will share research on health benefits of swimming and how to reduce drowning
World Aquatic Health Conference (WAHC) organizers announced four keynote talks that will provide insights on the unknown benefits of aquatics to the populations we serve. Non-profit National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) hosts the 11th annual WAHC, which is slated for Oct. 8 to 10, at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Portland, Ore.

When it comes to drinking water safety, many new innovations are focused on emerging contaminants. One new testing method, however, focuses on something that has plagued drinking water for ages — contamination by fecal matter. Water Quality Products Managing Editor Kate Cline recently spoke with Vladislav V. Yakovlev, developer of the technology, about the new testing method and its potential benefits.
Kate Cline: Briefly describe the new detection method procedure.
A new method for detecting fecal matter in water
Residential drinking water treatment unit products have many standards and protocols available to companies to demonstrate that their products have been tested and certified to verify that the materials that come into contact with drinking water are not harmful, the products are structurally sound and the performance reduction claims are accurate. Commercial products were seemingly left in the dust, however, and end users do not have a significant amount of guidance within the standards to make the same distinctions about these larger systems.
Testing & certification options for commercial water treatment systems
Google, Kleenex, Xerox, Wite-Out and Seeing Eye Dogs. These household names all share a common trait: They all carry an automatic recognition stimulus to the brain, yet not one of them is an actual product. They are however, brand names that have become synonymous with their product category. Have you Googled something lately? If you have a runny nose do you reach for a facial tissue or a Kleenex?
Four key aspects of a strong marketing plan
