In The Know On Flow

A Note From Brian Staff


It's a whole new era here at Hach Flow and we're excited for the opportunities the future holds. I realize that, as I sit here writing, I'm penning the first-ever Focus On Flow introduction not coming straight from either Larry or Kevin Marsh's desks. As Kevin announced in last month's issue, after 25 years of excellent service with Hach he has stepped away to pursue a new opportunity. While we are, of course, sad to see him go, we are excited for him as he tackles this new journey. Kevin certainly left his mark on our business, and at the same time, we know that MMI and now Hach Flow will always be in his blood. Fortunately, we all operate in a small world, so we know we'll get to see Kevin again soon. In fact, we're counting on him to choose a restaurant at WEFTEC.

One of the exciting opportunities that we see for our customers in 2015 is the continued growth and development of our Data Delivery Services (DDS). The article featured below ran in last month's Water & Wastes Digest and highlights the great work San Antonio Water System (SAWS) is doing with large-scale flow monitoring using these DDS services. We're thrilled with their success and proud to play a part. For an entertaining video explaining the DDS flow monitoring service approach, click here.

As Kevin would always say, "Until next month..."
