  7. Samplers Are Getting Smarter And So Can You
    3/4/2016

    For over 40 years, the Clean Water Act (CWA) has been a primary force protecting our waters and dictating the work of treat­ment professionals. And, for just as long, samplers have been the tools that allow this work to be carried out. Many plants, however, have yet to embrace the advances in technology that are transforming one of their most funda­mental tools. To help usher those plants into the modern age, Water Online spoke with Endress+Hauser about how samplers have evolved to meet changing needs,
