A representative from Utah’s award-winning water system will accompany a delegation from the Rural Water Association of Utah to Washington DC to attend the National Water Rally next February. There they will compete against the best water winners from other states in the Nation for the National title. Hopefully the 2014 winner will live up to the reputation set by Stansbury Park in Tooele county this year as they won second place nationwide earlier this month. Beaver, Utah won first place in the nation in 2006.
The Rural Water Taste Test is part of the Rural Water Association of Utah’s Annual Conference held at the Dixie Center in St. George, Utah, Feb. 24 – 28, 2014. This conference is the largest water and wastewater conference in the west, and the 3rd largest in the nation. Each year over 1,500 water and wastewater system employees, elected and appointed officials flock to St. George to receive the training they need and earn state-required Continuing Education Units (CEUs). While at the conference, those in attendance get the added bonus of networking with their peers from all across the state, and of having the latest innovations in the water and wastewater industry at their disposal in an exhibit hall with over 200 booths.
The Rural Water Association of Utah provides training and technical assistance to water and wastewater systems, enabling them to stay current with new technologies and rules and regulations so that they may better serve the citizens of Utah.
