On April 24, 2019, WWEMA member Blue Sources, along with their partner, the U.S. Army Center for Environmental Health Research (USACEHR), received an award for their cooperative effort in “Exemplary Retransfer of Aquatic Biomonitor Through Combined In-Licensing/Out-Licensing.” The award was presented by the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC); FLC is a U.S. national network of federal laboratories that provide a forum to develop strategies and opportunities to help transfer laboratory mission technologies into commercial products for the global marketplace. Blue Sources services for water and wastewater treatment facilities include detecting toxic chemicals in water through monitoring the naturally-occurring electric field emitted by live bluegills breathing water. Blue Sources Co-founder & CEO Terry Collins is encouraged by FLC’s announcement and is quoted as saying “This award shows how government and private industry can work successfully together. We are proud to carry the torch because this system has such a broad value. Clean, safe water is critical to everybody.”
