Tri-Association Conference

Fast thinking and fun characterize this annual competition as teams of water plant operators square off against each other. The quiz show format tests the operators knowledge as they answer challenging technical, regulatory, and customer service questions.

The room will be filled with the spirit of contest as the participants are cheered, judges are booed, and competitors vie for a chance to go to the National Top Ops Challenge at AWWA 's Annual Conference and Exposition – to be held in Toronto Canada, in June, 2023.
