Hello Everyone,


I know that I cannot be the only one out there who has had questions about the quality of water entering my labs.  Finding and INTERPRETING the information can be a long and frustrating process.  I am so lucky to have access to this ListServ as a resource!  Not everyone is so lucky. 


Many of us learned about this great division by seeing a talk about a topic that we needed help with.  So, please step up and share your stories, knowledge, expertise, or even disasters with those attending the spring ACS meeting in New Orleans during the D-CHAS Water Quality Safety symposium.  You may have a system for checking your eyewashes that could encourage others to check theirs more often and one day end up saving someone’s eyesight or an understanding of vacuum breakers that can help labs avoid those frustrating leaks.


Please go to and follow the prompts.  The deadline is 10/30/17.  Please contribute so that no one ends up listening to me and my students talk for hours about the havoc that the Water Crisis wreaked on my labs!

I thank you in advance for considering this request,
