A Picture of Dr. Richard

Dr.Michael Richard is a world authority on wastewater treatment microbiology and has provided microbiological analysis, filament identification, and chemical polysaccharide testing for activated sludge systems, lagoons, filters or any biological treatment process to troubleshoot, diagnose problems and suggest remedial actions.

After more than 35 years and 30,000 sludges, some painful mobility issues have finally required him to retire.
