    Introducing Hach's Hero: Sheila Guevara, Water Quality & Treatment, City of Sanford, Sanford, FL Sheila Guevara is the Water Quality Specialist at the City of Sanford (City), Florida. Sheila is an environmental engineer who graduated with a Master's Degree from UCF. Her job impacts the lives of numerous people in the City. Sheila is the person who keeps the City in compliance with drinking water federal and state regulations. She loves her job because it gives her the opportunity to educate co-workers, customers, family and community about the importance of water quality and treatment and water conservation. Sheila also enjoys volunteering in the community, at church and as an engineer in the water industry. Hach products have helped Sheila impact the lives of others in different ways. City staff (water and wastewater plant operators, process control technician and water quality specialist) use Hach products at the water and wastewater plants and in the distribution system for a variety of monitoring, testing, and analysis to provide regulated and safe drinking water to customers. The continuing effort of providing best water quality to customers paid off on March 22, 2017, when the City received the Central Florida's Best Tasting Drinking Water Award from the Florida Section of the FSAWWA. This is the great testament to the hard work and dedication to the quality of the City staff. The city has also purchased pocket colorimeters, colorimeters (DR 850) and multi-use meters (HQ 30D & 40D) to lab spectrophotometers (DR 5000 & 6000) to help comply with Federal and State regulations. Sheila uses Hach products at the water plants and in the distribution system to collect data for drinking water monitoring, compliance sampling and pilot studies, which help improve water quality. Finally, Hach products have helped Sheila educate customers about water quality and treatment by using them as a tool to test and analyze water samples in the distribution when questions arise. She also educates children about the importance of water quality, testing, and conservation.

    Introducing This Week's Hach's Hero: Kevin Gorham, Head Grower, Solutions Farms, Vista, CA Kevin Gorham works for a non-profit organization called Solutions For Change, which works to solve family homelessness. Their aquaponic farm acts as a work training site for the participants who learn the life skills needed to permanently end their homelessness. Kevin uses a Hach Photometer to monitor their aquaculture and hydroponic system, and as a result, they are able to achieve healthy growth in both systems. This allows Solutions For Change to sell their products to local markets, and take the revenue back into the nonprofit to help more families. Using the Photometer with the residents allows Kevin to work on professional skills, while at the same time exposing them to a bit of science and technology. The [Photometer] manual is very clear, the instructions are easy to follow, and with a little instruction the residents are usually able to get the hang of the meter after a few uses. According to Kevin, "The first time I teach someone to use the device I like them to just observe the whole process from taking the sample to recording the results. I walk through each step with them (and the manual open), and then I usually check a few parameters and run a few different tests. Once the residents seem to have the hang of it I let them take over, and let me know if anything goes wrong. I feel like using the photometer allows them to feel like they are a part of the bigger picture, because most of their work is manual labor such as seeding, transplanting, and harvesting."
