Expert Witness: Sewage and Effluent Treatment

I have got a couple of expert witness jobs on the books now, both with enough meat on the bones to take a while to get to the bottom of. Both involve effluent treatment, one municipal and the other industrial, and unusually, both might be expected to make it to court.

I have been trained in being cross-examined in court, and have some experience of it, but it is good to get an opportunity to get more. 98% of cases get settled before they make it to court, and it is therefore hard to get courtroom experience.

In other news, the plant layout book is nearly finished, and I have written a number of blogs on LinkedIn and for Elsevier which have provoked a debate about (amongst other things) the problems with engineering education which I have written about before.
