Human life relies on the availability of clean water and thus is an essential part of our lives. In some countries, finding clean water is a continuous concern, but here in the USA most are blessed with access at our leisure due to the workforce of people (such as operators) who use their time and energy to care for the water/environment. Taking care of our water has become exceptionally important due to anthropogenic pollution and accompanying research discoveries on the adverse health effects of these pollutants. As such, the field is always changing with developing treatment technologies and challenges to address. The network of water/environment stewards are exceptional to work with and deeply care about finding solutions to these challenges. I enjoy being a part of this water stewardship helping to engineer solutions for the present, but also for future generations.
