WQA has launched a new podcast and blog to keep members and the public up to date about issues involving the water treatment industry. The H2O blog will be used to share news, information about upcoming events at WQA, and tips for consumers who may need help finding the right product to handle their water testing or filtration needs. The new podcast, called WQA Radio, is an audio program geared toward helping members and the public learn more about the Association and the important issues it addresses.
