A brief synopsis of the year in the water quality industry
This past October marked the 35th anniversary of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Water Act. This legislation certainly changed the landscape for national water quality issues by establishing a basic structure for regulating discharges of pollutants into U.S. waters and giving the EPA authority to implement pollution control programs. The act also continued requirements to set water quality standards for all contaminants in surface waters.
Water Quality Products invited Joseph F. Harrison, P.E., CWS-VI, technical director of the Water Quality Association (WQA), to give an overview of current industry issues and what to expect at the upcoming Mid-Year Leadership Conference, to be held Sept. 5-7 in Nashville, Tenn.
