In follow-up to my terrific trip to the 2011 AWRA meeting, I made some observations of the people of water (highlighted above). Personally, I like them all. For what appears to be a relatively simple substance, the polarity and conflicting human views associated with water make it an intriguing market.
The characterizations highlighted above are by no means exhaustive and, obviously, my opinion. Just consider them the people of WATER part one. Feel free to share ideas or suggestions for part two.
