Source Molecular Corporation sponsored three separate water quality conferences in Michigan, Texas and Montana this October, emphasizing the importance of identifying sources of water pollution in solving water quality related problems.
Source Molecular’s Grace Anderson attended the Water Quality/Stormwater Seminar hosted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality on October 12-13 at the Palmer Events Center in Austin. The seminar provided updates on permitting rules and upcoming regulations and included presentations covering a wide range of topics; from the technical aspects of municipal, industrial, stormwater, and sludge permits.-endpar-
Source Molecular also had an abstract prepared for the 16th Annual Great Lakes Beach Association Conference held October 4 to 7, 2016, at Marquette Regional History Center in Michigan. Source Molecular’s James Herrin was to present “Evidence-based guidelines for Microbial Source Tracking projects” and provide details on lessons learned and outcomes achieved from two MST projects. Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew derailed the trip to Michigan.
Source Molecular’s flyers also made an appearance at the 33rd Annual Montana American Water Resources Association (AWRA) Conference on October 13-14, 2016. The conference, with the theme: Water Quality & Quantity in a Changing Climate, was held at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. Source Molecular’s flyers depicts caricatures of human and animals that the laboratory can detect.
Source Molecular’s continued support for water quality conferences is part of its campaign to help educate water managers, environmental consulting firms, diverse permitted dischargers and environmental organizations about microbial source tracking and the application of this technology in solving challenging water quality issues.
