Environmental Scientists in Training

Students learning lab techniques
Research chemist Sarah Jones demonstrates laboratory techniques for the students

On a chilly October morning, twenty-three eager students from Gaelscoil Droichead na Banndan arrived at Acorn Water to learn about water quality and treatment. Environmental Chemistry Lab Manager Frank Mullins gave the students a tour of the state-of-the-art H2OLabcheck laboratory and demonstrated various techniques for water analysis. The students observed a range of tests including those for pH, bacteria, and coagulation.


“Water is one of our most precious resources, and we wanted to help give the students a better understanding of how its quality directly affects humans and the environment,” explains CTO William Holland. William, along with his brother and company Managing Director Aidan Holland, prepared presentations for the students that highlighted the effects of contaminated water on the environment.


“Our goal is to make water treatment more of a priority in our community, and the best way to do that is to teach the next generation of scientists and leaders. We hope the students enjoyed the morning as much as we did,” William says in regard to the event.


Moving forward, the team at Acorn Water hopes to continue providing education on water treatment and quality. For those interested in visiting and learning about what we do, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
