Just coming off a three-day holiday weekend here in the U.S. While Labor Day weekend is traditionally a chance to enjoy the last days of summer I know that many of you were performing infrastructure clean-up in and around your home towns. Between a rare east coast earthquake, a hurricane, and a tropical storm there's a lot of sewers, water systems, roads, etc... that need some TLC.


Here at Hach Flow we've been working on our own infrastructure clean-up as well. Our website has been completely redesigned with a goal of making information and support easier to find and use by our customers. See below for details.


On a more personal note I'm pleased to share with you that my father (and Marsh-McBirney founder) Larry Marsh has been named an industry icon by Water & Wastes Digest (WWD). This was part of WWD's 50th anniversary issue and includes some of the most notable names that have influenced our industry over the years. While WWD refers to Larry as Father Flow, I'm proud to just call him Dad.


Best regards,
