Wastecorp was glad to see so many engineering students focusing on pump technology at WEFTEC in Los Angeles. The great thing about meeting these students is that Wastecorp did most of the listening. We wanted to know what students thought about the pump technology available today for wastewater pumping. We discussed their curriculum and donating equipment to local colleges for use both on campus and in disaster relief services in developing nations. Today’s student in pump engineering is broadening her horizons, focusing on seeing different applications of pumps all over the world. The reality is many areas still lack proper pumping systems for the transfer of effluent, raw sewage and dirty water. Many of the students we spoke with want to make a difference for water quality around the world and we are proud to support this effort.
