Kevin’s 2021 McEllhiney Lecture, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Innovative Treatment Options for Established and Emerging Water Quality Challenges”, addresses both new and established processes for drinking water treatment to enable well drilling professionals, hydrologists, water system operators and managers, and others in the industry to work their way through the complications of water quality uncertainty. The physical, chemical, biological, and economic aspects of water quality impacts every person in the world, so ground- water professionals need to be involved in this issue, to work their way through the complexities of changing regulatory requirements, new scientific developments, and financial concerns from wellhead to tap, with a commonsense approach.
