Not many people know the importance of wastewater treatment let alone how it works. And it keeps getting more sophisticated all the time. There are computer programs to operate the equipment and help with the water testing. Some facilities have solar energy systems onsite to power the main headworks and to power connecting pump stations. Some are beginning to take biogas and recycle it to power their operations or to send it onto the main power grid to help supply power to homes. Wastewater treatment is a very important subject. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

There exists a huge gap of an entire generation about to retire with few behind them. My work has been designing and building alternatives including decentralized water and waste treatment applied to rural communities where biological systems shown great promise.
What needs to be taught is re-think waste not as a something better not seen at all but as a valuable resource where chemical and nutrient harvesting will be part of the future, secondary benefits of raising algae for biomass and fuel production from resource water and reclamation of title 22 quality effluent.

As a parent, I see a better future waiting for US kids.
In my native country, they more concentrate on theory than show students the fact practically.
