Iowa Promotes Water/Wastewater Professions

Iowa is certainly stepping out ahead of the crowd!  They have brought water and wastewater to the attention of their Governor!   Governor Terry Brandstad is set to proclaim an official Water and Wastewater Workers of Iowa Week.  Given the flooding challenges that the state has faced recently, this is a well deserved acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of these unsung heroes – on a daily basis as well as during an emergency!  Read below for more details:

Governor’s Proclamation: Wastewater and Water Workers of Iowa Week:  An event is planned for Thursday, July 28th, at 10:00 a.m., at the Ames Wastewater Treatment Plant, where the Governor will sign a proclamation for “Water and Wastewater Workers of Iowa Week.”  The proclamation will read, in part, “Recognizing that the State of Iowa’s wealth of natural resources has been threatened by the degradation of surface and ground waters, the Water and Wastewater workforce of Iowa have dedicated themselves to applying environmental passion and science to enhance
drinking and recreational waters of Iowa.”  For further information, see the Iowa Water Environment Association’s website:
