I believe it is wonderful that ASCE has now created this forum for exchanges of information and ideas among its members.
For several years now, as a retired Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, I have contributed what I hoped were useful educational materials to the American Chemical Society member's blog. Entitled 'water and wastewater slide shows'
, this often whimsical material has been freely distributed to all those interested in the technology - and history - of what was once known as 'sanitary engineering'
It is my hope that some of my CE colleagues may also find these materials useful and, possibly, even worthy of correction.
