It's no understatement to say that I am deeply into water. As a water professional, I think about water all the time. I stay current on the technologies that help keep our water supply safe. I am an avid student of the history of water systems. I grew up in New York City, home to the best-tasting water in the world, and I'm fortunate to live in the U.S., which has a high national standard for water quality, safeguarded by the colleagues I saw recently at AWWA's ACE conference.
