We will post any responses in our next newsletter!

The History of Sanitary Sewers

We found this website very fascinating and thought you might as well! Curated by a historian in Arizona, sewerhistory.org seeks to document the development of sanitation from ancient times to the modern world.

"The purpose of this website is to house this dynamic collection of materials about the evolutionary development of sewers over the past 5500 years, and to provide a location for the sharing and distribution of information to others."

In each week's newsletter, we're highlight an excellent video worth watching. That video is also be featured on our home page during the week. Visit our archive for past features.

This week's featured video is the first of an 8-part series featuring four generations of water and wastewater operations professionals as they share their perspectives, insights and wisdom about careers in water.
