Reflections From the Chair, Continued from page 7 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 genera- tions. 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 H2O KNOW Water College offers UNLIMITED online training on more also that the path to solution—specifically leveraging the value than 60 safety and technical offerings to water professionals throughout and benefits of participation in the CA-NV Section of AWWA— California and Nevada.

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.
