CONGRATULATIONS to Elevated Ops, Double Duty, and Sewerside Squad for ruling WEFTEC.2019's Operations Challenge. 
 

Nearly four dozen teams, including three RMWEA teams as well as international competitors, participated in this year's Ops Challenge. Teams demonstrate operational competence and efficiency in five different events:  Process Control, Laboratory, Safety, Collection Systems, and KSB Maintenance. More information about this year's event is on WEF's website.


Building on last year's success, we are pleased to announce Elevated Ops (Metro Wastewater Reclamation District) took 1st place in Division I (overall winners).

More local faces were on the podium this year. Double Duty (Metro Wastewater Reclamation District) are the 2nd place winners for Division II!

 

First time WEFTEC Competitors Sewerside Squad (City of Westminster) earned 2nd place in the Division II Process Control Event - awesome accomplishment for an introductory year!
