I think it’s safe to say that 2020 has been nothing like what we anticipated. Despite that, though, we’re adapting and innovating how we work and how we learn as individuals and as an industry. As an industry resource, we always strive to help our readers learn, and I hope this year’s Case Book helps us in achieving that goal. 

On the following pages, you will read application stories featuring various storm water and erosion control products and services. As with any article or application story we publish, I hope they make you think. 

Additionally, to gain more industry knowledge, you can always access webinars from the past year on our website. They are all free and the majority are worth one PDH credit each. 

And coming up, we have quite a few webinars lined up for you to close out the year. Starting this month, SWS and fellow water publications of Scranton Gillette Communications (SGC), Water & Wastes Digest (WWD) and Water Quality Products, are teaming up with Global Water Works to bring you a three-part series on atmospheric water. The webinars will take place once a month until November. In October, SWS is teaming up with WWD and Roads & Bridges, fellow magazines of the SGC Infrastructure Group, to bring our audiences the second annual Infrastructure Virtual Summit. From Oct. 27 to 29, you can tune into six webinars over the three-day event. Finally, in November, we will host the final webinar of the four-part series we introduced earlier this year. This webinar will cover green infrastructure, and I hope you all will join us.

For all of these webinars, stay tuned and visit estormwater.com for registration and presentation information. Stay well, readers!
