Racial equity in wastewater and biosolids

We are in a pandemic. A pandemic that has impacted all of us, but one which is disproportionally impacting indigenous and people of color, especially black people.  Deaths from COVID-19 for black Americans are nearly two times greater than would be expected based on their share of the population [1]. The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and many others show the systemic racism and inequity that persists in the United States today.

If you had asked then-college student, Brady Linden where he thought he would be after graduation, his response likely would not have included the words “wastewater”, “sewer,” or “biosolids.” 

Brady earned his BS in Environmental Geology from Central Washington University and his plan was to pursue a job in that field of work.
