Dipping Joins Panel on Managing Risk of Unsafe Water in Buildings

ESD Technical Director for Plumbing Engineering James Dipping will be part of the 2022 Emerging Water Technology Symposium where he and a group of industry experts will discuss how to keep building water systems safe.

The six-member panel will be presenting “Effective Risk Management of Building Water Systems for Pathogen Control” on the first day of the conference. Dipping and the group will be discussing current best practices on water system risk management and what trends they are seeing in contaminated water systems. Dipping says part of the key to good risk mitigation is to have a solid water management plan in place. Without such a plan, Dipping continued “At best, you are missing out on potential cost savings, and at worst, you could be exposing your occupants to an unhealthy environment putting your organization at risk of costly lawsuits.”

The Emerging Water Technology Symposium seeks to gather well-known experts from around the world to discuss ideas and approaches about emerging technologies coming to the market.

James Dipping brings more than two decades of experience to his role as technical director, plumbing engineering. He freely shares his knowledge with other industry professionals to further ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
