This has created a growing shortage of technical people needed to design, build, upgrade, operate and service the required water treatment systems, both new and old. The problem is that few colleges teach water treatment-related technology. This may be because the technologies of water treatment cross curricula lines. So where will the new generation of talent come from? The workers may come from several sources.
