Study of metals in wastewater systems, coordinated with data from Nation wide plumbers

Friday, 26 February 2021
Analyzing the heavy metals and minerals in waste water systems, data gathered by plumbers.

We will be taking a close look at the effects of heavy metals inside of our waste water systems, and where they end up.

Visit our friends at Dr. Pipes Plumbing who are helping to provide data
