Nearly 100 people attended to see more than 11 presentations from clients of the facility about their work with water treatment technologies.
One of the presentations came from Reclamation's Katherine Guerra, Ph.D., who shared information regarding funding opportunities through Reclamation. There were several other presentations surrounding water treatment technologies at the facility including reverse osmosis, solar energy in the treatment process and innovative electrodialysis technologies.
Participants were also able to learn more about the facility, including touring the facility to see its offering of technology development, validation testing and demonstration testing.
