AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
Commercial softening provides a significant opportunity to well-grounded water improvement professionals. It requires a special skill set, similar to residential applications, but at an elevated and more detailed level. While the troubleshooting and repair methods may be more sophisticated, the basics are the same.
System configuration is more critical and variable, allowing for a wider variety of possible solutions. Choose wisely, as the cost of poor initial system selection will be exacerbated over the life of the equipment. The least expensive option is almost never the best.

Glade Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Marriott Hotels, Starbucks and The White House may be vastly different with regard to the people who use and manage the facilities; yet when it was time to solve water quality problems, they all looked to the same resource: Kevin Britton, a RainSoft dealer at Quality Water of Maryland, located in Frederick, Md. (part of the Washington D.C. metro area).

When it comes to keeping their big rigs clean and sparkling, most truck drivers are as particular about a good wash as any car owner might be—maybe even more particular considering the dollars some have wrapped up in their 18-wheelers. Owners of large vehicle fleets such as buses and delivery trucks seem to appreciate the value a clean machine has in properly projecting their corporate image. During winter months in many northern states, just cleaning off road salt and sand is imperative to vehicle maintenance.
