Episode 14: Mark Merkelbach and Vince Seibold

Listen on your favorite platform

In this episode, Ryan and Brett take a trip down Memory Lane and wind up sitting down with water quality innovators, Mark Merkelbach and Vince Seibold with Sustainable Water Infrastructure Group (SWIG) to take a glimpse back on the original Florida Specifier article from 2020; how they got their start; the risk and reward of getting paid for performance, not by the project; and some other projects besides that famous one on Doctor’s Lake. We even get a preview of how they’re expanding their reach to cover all of Florida and expanding the number of pollutants they’re able to treat as well. You won’t want to miss this one.
