Why should I celebrate Industrial Water Week?

  •  Why not?  We celebrate many other things in our lives, so why not celebrate our chosen profession?
  • Industrial Water Treatment is a noble profession that should be celebrated for saving energy, water, equipment, time, the environment, and more. 
  • Industrial Water Treatment utilizes a wide range of skill sets that engages the mind and rewards curiosity. It encourages both independence and teamwork. It employs a diverse set of people. While not recession proof, it is often recession insulated because industrial, commercial, and institutional users still need well-managed water to keep their doors open.  While it should be celebrated everyday, let's at least celebrate Industrial Water Treatment for one week a year.
  • No one outside of our profession really knows what we do.  Industrial Water Week is a reason to tell them.
  • No one outside our profession knows what we do is even a career option.  Industrial Water Week is a reason to tell them.
