Putting the Pieces Together

Soar into Spring with WARWS at our 28th Annual Technical Conference, and get a bird’s eye view of how all the parts of your system work together. ‘Putting the Pieces Together’ is the theme for this year’s conference. Water and wastewater systems have more pieces and moving parts than is easily imagined. Owners, operators, and decision-makers are often forced to try to put this puzzle together without even having a box with a picture on it. This year’s conference will be the box with the picture. By the time you leave conference, you will have a much better idea of what the pieces of your system are, how they fit together, and how to maximize your efforts to make them fit easily and work together most efficiently.

We will have everything you need to do this, from classes, to vendors, to knowledgeable staff to ask questions of. The classes will be extensive, and cover everything from rules, to cyber security, system resiliency in the face of manmade or natural disasters, pumps, motors, well efficiency, disinfection, alternative treatments, valves, water reuse, and other classes too numerous to discuss, but all important parts of your system. There is even a whole other track of classes especially designed for decision-makers. If it has to do with water, wastewater, or utility management, we’ve got it covered.

Talk and network with your fellow operators and learn what challenges they have faced this year and how they met them.

Vendors galore will also be available to help you find just the right technology and equipment to make those pieces fit together. There is technology available today that didn’t even exist as a twinkle in its Creators eye five years ago. Our industry moves at light speed, which makes putting together this puzzle even more challenging. Spring conference is an excellent way to keep up with all the information available and find out what resources are available to make the pieces fit.

You are an important piece of this puzzle, and you need some down time to process all that you will be learning. While you are taking a breath, there will be great food, 50/50 tickets, raffles and the ever popular ‘Game Night’. Join us in Casper and get all the pieces put together.

Make a Difference

One WARWS Board of Director position will be up for election during the Spring Conference. The Southeast Region includes Converse, Niobrara, Carbon, Albany, Platte, Goshen and Laramie counties. To be eligible to sit on the board, you must be an employee or official representative of a member system. Board responsibilities include quarterly meetings, two of which are done at conferences. The other two by phohe. If interested, submit a letter-of-intent to Mark Pepper, or email markp@warws.com.

The Best Tasting Water in Wyoming

We invite every system attending conference to enter "The Best Tasting Water in Wyoming" contest. The winning system will be hosted (airfare, room, and meals, for one representative) in Washington D.C. at the National Rural Water Rally 2020 by the Wyoming Rural water Executive Director and Wyoming National Director. The delegation will meet with officials from the USDA Rural Development, USEPA and will visit with wyoming’s US Senators and Representative to discuss water issues facing systems in Wyoming. To enter, bring 1/2 gallon of your water, in glass and on ice to the registration booth when you check in.
