pioneers of today. The landscape and playing field in which
we operate has clearly changed over time, but the 21st century
drinking water challenges that will be presented and explored
for solution at the Conference are simply today’s version of the
same problems that our industry has been facing for generations.
The actions we take today through participation in CA-NV
AWWA and our attendance of this upcoming Conference will
ultimately amount to our sharing the lead toward ensuring the
future of drinking water reliability in our states.
I have little doubt that our inevitable successes in collectively
addressing the drinking water challenges of today will be the
subject of discussion amongst California-Nevada water utilities
during the next century. I’m also very sure that their issues will
be some very similar version of the challenges we currently face.
My hope is that they recognize the premise of this article—the
more things change, the more they remain the same. If so, they
will recognize that the problems have remained the same but
also that the path to solution—specifically leveraging the value
and benefits of participation in the CA-NV Section of AWWA—
in fact remains the same. I look forward to working together with
you at our Annual Fall Conference this October in San Diego! S
Time is running out
to comply with the EPA Stage 2 DBP Rule.
It’s time for water utilities across America to comply with the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Stage 2 Disinfectants
and Disinfection Byproducts Rule.
That’s why Calgon Carbon provides activated carbon
adsorption solutions to help communities reduce the
levels of naturally occurring matter in drinking water and,
consequently, the formation of disinfection by-products.
And, because funding for capital improvements can
be challenging for municipalities, Calgon Carbon offers
the Potable Water Service Program to help communities
economically meet their municipal drinking water objectives.
