April 12 , 2008 Workshop featured guest speakers Spike Cover and Dick Benbow.  An Invitation was made to the Spokane IEWGKS members to join us.  This educational workshop was focused on water quality parameters affected by water hardness, alkalinity, salinity, pH, dissolved organic carbon.  Spike and Dick complimented each other with their combined knowledge as to how ideal water conditions enhance not only the health but also the overall appearance of black (sumi), red (beni) and white (shiro).
