New - 2020 Virtual Operations Challenge Resource page

Hello all - 
 
It has been a difficult and disruptive year, and things are very different since we were all in Chicago last year. What remains unchanged is your unwavering dedication to providing the essential clean water services on which all of your communities rely. WEF's Operations Challenge Committee commends your sustained efforts and sincerely hopes all of you are well. 
 
Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic this year's WEFTEC will be entirely virtual. The committee is profoundly disappointed we will be unable to convene in New Orleans, but we want to maintain our sense of community as best we can. We will be staging an abbreviated skills competition via remote participation and we invite you to join us. 
 
The competition will take place October 5-9. Detailed event descriptions will be posted soon, but we have created abridged versions of the process control, laboratory, and collections events while reducing the number of participants in each event to 2. Please see https://www.weftec.org/attend/operations-challenge/ for more information and registration form.
 
Briefly - 
Events revised to be performed by 2 people
Process control multiple choice, extended math, and modeling scenarios all to be performed on computer
Lab event will be just the instrument table
The collections event will be 3 blade cuts, hole saw cut, and installation of the InsertaTee
As there have been no qualifying competitions there will be no limit of number of teams from each MA
Registration fee is $100, deadline is September 11
2 new divisions, one for new competitors and one for alumni
 
You will compete via video conference and will be required to provide 2 video perspectives for judging. This is your event, and if you have any thoughts we want to hear them. Please send questions or comments to opschallenge@wef.org
 
Be careful, stay safe,
