 Operations Challenge

​Operations Challenge is the water sector's premier skills competition.  It is unmatched in delivering cross training, team building and professional development.  

Teams of four compete to earn the highest score in five different events: Collections Systems, Laboratory, Process Control, Maintenance and Safety.  Each event is designed to put the diverse skills required to operate and maintain a water resource recovery facility to the test.  

On June 6 and 7, 2022, these five NYWEA teams went head-to-head at NYWEA's Salt City Operators Challenge in Syracuse.  

The competition was fun and furious as depicted in this video produced by NYWEA's own Lucas Kasperowicz:


Best of luck to the the four NYWEA teams who will battle teams from across the country on October 10th and 11th at WEFTEC in New Orleans!
