Operator Competition Day - March 22, 2023 

Do you have what it takes to win against your fellow water professionals? We will be holding 3 competitions: Best Tasting Water, Meter Challenge and Gimmicks and Gadgets. 

 Meter Challenge: The Competition is a measure of an individual's skill at assembling a meter quickly, totally, and accurately. All parts will be assembled in a proper manner and the re-assembled meter shall be tested by the judges for the ability to meter water and for water leakage from the meter. To order a Zenner multi jet practice meter, please reach out directly to Jorge Pacheco (jpacheco@zennerusa.com) and ask for meters for AWWA Meter Challenge 2023.

Gimmicks & Gadgets: Entries are judged on the basis of originality, simplicity, use, and application to the water industry. A successful entry will be a novel and relatively simple mechanical device or procedure. It will be designed to provide a more efficient, safe, or simplified way to perform a routine task or function in the maintenance, operation, or construction of a water utility system.

Best Tasting Water:  How does your District’s water stack up to all the rest?   Samples will be judged in three different categories: scent, flavor and aftertaste, on a 10-point scale from low (1) to high (10).  Scores will be tabulated and the winner will be announced immediately following the judging.
