Reviewer: Pat Wolfe
This book takes the reader on a journey from the beginning of water treatment to a modern urban water treatment system located in Cape Coral, Florida. Although appealing to Floridians, the scope of the book is much broader. Mr. Kopko brings a wealth of knowledge to a subject that is capturing the attention of communities around the world making his book a worthy addition to your bookshelf.

  Interesting Read , 10/17/2015
Reviewer: Anne Lane
The biographies of historical characters that played a role in the development of water treatment and a helpful glossary made it easy to absorb even technical data. Appreciated the many detailed drawings, photos and illustrations which made for an interesting read!

  Eye Opener to a topic I took for granted , 01/07/2018
Reviewer: Michelle Geesin
I really enjoyed reading this book. I had no idea Cape Coral was a hub for modern urban water treatment. Mr. Kopko’s publication provides a vast wealth of knowledge to this topic, which, until I read it, took the entire process of water treatment for granted. It’s a great reference tool that even my high-school will end up using for a report! This book was easy to read, sparked my interest and I appreciated its conciseness of the book, as well as the drawings, photos, illustrations and historical references.
