With her lecture on the Natural and the Urban Water Cycles, Marta challenged her audience's perception of the role of bacteria and of the origin of drinking water. The many questions she received about the quality of the drinking water and the operation of drinking water- and wastewater-treatment plants clearly indicated that she had been very successful at engaging her audience.
