Key moment & wisdom (26:50): “The thing that I want to tell people most is that I really would love it if water professionals, from anywhere in the spectrum—whether you’re running a utility to working at the plant to being an installer—whatever it is you’re doing in the water sector... It is so important for you to call your members of Congress and tell them what you need.”
