For more than 30 years, utilities have been using purple pipe to designate high-quality municipally or privately treated domestic reclaimed water. Reclaimed water might be of different quality from one community or state to another, but uniformly, a utility oversees and provides control of the quality of reclaimed water that meets regulatory standards for the intended use.

August 2, 2010We had 1539 scouts and visitors today. A good day. We need some more of these. There is not a lot new to report today, other than I hope my voice holds out for another day.

Thanks, Carl, for the break. Great job. Since I can type only slightly faster than snails crawl, the break is appreciated. Carl was the electrician in charge of correction of a problem with our communications system. Remember the switch that you put on hold when scouts come into the exhibit and send when they leave? Our treatment plant 2 had a problem and Carl got the problem corrected with a new switch.
July 31, 2010 UpdateWhat a great day at the Scout Jamboree… as expected the traffic to the Jamboree this morning was unbelievable and it took us over an hour and fifteen minutes to get to the site. Once there, I was called upon to fix a defective on/off switch going from one of the exhibit areas to the entrance.

Posted July 31, 2010The hot weather finally broke today and temperatures were in the 80’s with a slight breeze and much lower humidity. All of the exhibit volunteers were kept very busy with about 1870 scouts, adults and visitors coming through our exhibit.
