The Water Management session enforced that we are meeting the essential steps of a water management program. We also learned new information to guide improvements, which we will discuss at our next Water Quality meeting. Continuous improvement is our strategy, and JCR programs ignite new possibilities for improving and sustaining our quality and safety.
