Episode 78: Show Notes

Nation!  you ask for it, so here it is!  An Episode series on Waste Water. 

Every year the Association of Water Technologies (AWT) offers a training seminar on waste water.  The trainers that donate their time are top notch.  They explain everything a beginner would need to know to begin a career in waste water treatment.  Unfortunately, not everyone can attend these seminars.  So, in an attempt to deliver to the Scaling UP! Nation! a piece of what you get at the that training, my friend Kevin Cope of (insert his company) was gracious enough to come on Scaling UP! H2O and take us through a complete survey of a water plant. 

I know this episode will be one of your favorites.  So, buckle up!  Your about to be transported into a water plant though the expertise and experience of Kevin Cope.
