Water-tasting contest

Is your water the best-tasting water in Nebraska? You won't know unless you submit a sample in the tasting contest at the Nebraska AWWA Fall conference in Kearney on November 3rd.

AWWA members can drop their water off at the conference registration desk in the Younes Conference Center by noon on Wednesday, November 3rd. Water samples should be in a clean container (at least one gallon), at room temperature when dropped off, and be clearly marked as "Treated" or "Untreated".

Please direct questions to Mary Poe at 402-471-1003 or mary.poe@nebraska.gov

The Public Information committee has hosted the water-tasting contest each year since 2009. Contact Mary Poe with any questions.

Benefit poker night

The Young Professionals committee will host a benefit poker tournament on Wednesday, November 3rd, following the Nebraska Section AWWA banquet (approximately 9:00 pm). All conference attendees are invited to participate. The tournament benefits the Nebraska Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders. The suggested donation is $20.
