A Day Of Water Quality Testing

December 20, 2016  •  1 Comment

Several weeks ago I joined HDR Engineering, Inc. as they walked through examples of the testing and data recording that takes place when completing water quality tests. HDR is one of my commercial clients who often takes me on fun adventures outside of my normal tours of architecture and interiors.  These guys were a lot of fun to follow around and were very knowledgeable when it comes to the quality of water.  Check out some of our water adventures below. Photos like these are often used by clients to promote their services through display on websites, presentations, and other marketing materials.
