Mankind doesn’t manufacture water; we just endlessly recycle it. These products help utilities gather, filter, pump, and otherwise process this can’t-live-without finite resource.

There are two major water-industry conventions every year. In June, the American Waters Works Association convened to discuss drinking water; in September-October, the Water Environment Federation addresses wastewater and stormwater.

There’s something for everyone at these shows, whether you work in the plant or at a lab, whether you’re the superintendent or an operator.
