The ways we gain new insight in the wastewater industry, keep up with the latest trends, and interact with others are changing as a result of current events. While this shift towards a more remote model changes how we learn and communicate, it doesn’t change the abundance of information available. Countless digital resources have cropped up from professional associations and wastewater media outlets and can be accessed regardless of your location.
