Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - February 2014
Water Distribution Committee
Owen Keenan, Chair
Our Committee enjoyed a very productive 2013, and we are all
looking forward to another great year in 2014. Our Committee is growing. We
have two new members. We welcome Rob Davis and John Hoffman to the Committee,
and we look forward to working with them, giving back to the water works
community, and having a little fun.
Once again at this year’s WATERCON, we will have "BOZO
BUCKETS” at our Committee’s booth, and we hope that people will stop by to play
and have some fun. While you are at our WATERCON booth, please cast your vote
for your favorite photo in our Water Tank Photo Contest. The top twelve vote
getters will have their tank photos published in our 2nd annual
Water Tank Calendar. Please go to the link at www.isawwa.org/2014_tank_contest for contest details and to submit
If you can’t get away to Springfield to attend WATERCON in March,
please try to go to our 7th Annual Water Distribution Conference at
Medinah Banquets in Addison, Illinois, on Tuesday, April 24th. Last
year’s conference had a record breaking total of 232 attendees. It was clear
that our annual conference had outgrown the Park Place facility in Countryside.
Thanks to the efforts of our Vice Chair Scott Bernholdt, this year’s conference
will be at a larger facility that will accommodate more attendees and more exhibitors.
GREAT (job) SCOTT!
