Local Water & Sewer Operators to Represent Ohio
 in National Competion 

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – Water and sewer operators from The Northwestern Water & Sewer District (The District) are heading to Chicago to compete in the national “Operations Challenge” at the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) September 30 through October 4. 


The “Ops Challenge” is an intense competition involving timed events in wastewater treatment operations, maintenance, laboratory, safety and collection systems. 


The District team “Dirty Deeds” took first place in collections, first in safety, first in maintenance, second place in lab and first place overall in Division 1 in The Ohio Water Environment Association (OWEA) “Ops Challenge” in June.  The OWEA is funding the trip for the number one team in the state to compete with water and sewer operators from around the country.   


Best of luck to District employees Claud Barringer, Bryan Martikan, Tom McGrain, Jarred Myers, and Todd Saums.
