Gathered in the Pacific Northwest, national plumbing engineers group recognized its own amid backdrop of technology symposium.


BELLEVUE, WA, September 30, 2023  At the 2023 ASPE Tech Symposium Awards Luncheon Saturday, the American Society of Plumbing Engineers recognized numerous local Chapters and members for their accomplishments during the 2022–2023 year.
