Special guests Lisa Maddaus, CFO and Senior Engineer at Maddaus Water Management, and Drew Atwater, Director of Finance at Water Resources of Moulton Niguel Water District, join The Water Zone to discuss what the average person might not know about water. Both guests explain some of the various programs they are working on to help better educate the public on the efficient use of water. Both guests saw toilets, showerheads and outdoor irrigation as three areas of opportunity to increase efficiency. They both commented that the water industry is in dire need of more water specialists and now is a great opportunity for not only environmental and civil engineers, but also for maintenance-skilled people to calibrate back-flow systems, install smart irrigation systems, and staff to control water recycling plants.
