With the snow storm tonight, most likely, will be staying put.

Some additional inputs

1. IBM Waste/Water engineers have expressed in interest in re-viewing
future student engineering efforts involving water treatment.

2. The UVM department of infectious disease has also expressed interest in
being involved with this effort. They already are
involved with clean water type programs around the globe, and would be an
excellent local resource to bring into this topic. I am in the process
of gathering the contacts, and some background of existing efforts.

Hi evreryone,
IBM does embrace Lean Manufacturing, and we have used it in many fields
that directly apply to manufacturing processes, but , also, we have applied
it to areas of development. I have participated in one of them.
