113 Pinks and Blues: Questions From the Nation!, Using Your Five Senses

Pinks and Blues: Questions From the Nation!, Using Your Five Senses  

Nation!, once again friend of show James McDonald, CWT is trying to help us become better water treaters. 

James wants to know how do we use our five senses to be better water treaters?”  While I answer his question, I don’t think there is just one answer.  After listening to this episode, ask yourself these questions: 

  • How would you answer, “how do we use our five senses to be better water treaters”?   
  • What can you do differently now you are thinking about your 5 senses? 
  • How can I protect my 5 senses? 

This question just goes to show how its not always the tough technical questions that make us better.  Its thinking about the common, everyday things that truly make us better at our job. 

Thanks James!
