Faces of Palm Desert with Scott Rogers

Did you know that each person on Earth requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean?   As we have seen with the Flint, MI water crisis over the last few years, clean water is something many take for granted but without it; we can’t survive. 

This month we sat down with Scott Rogers of Hazen and Sawyer to discuss how his company makes a positive impact for clean water, his background and why he chose Fusion Worksplaces Palm Desert.

I got started in the industry when I was in college.  I was an intern for the City’s engineering and planning departments.
