Would you like to help develop the first WIOA National Water Main Tapping Competition?

We’re excited to develop a national competition that brings water main operators together, to continue an industry tradition. And we’re looking for representatives from each state/territory to join the Advisory Group that will make it happen.

Our inaugural Advisory Group Chair, Ben Pennell from City of Gold Coast, said the group would develop rules for the competition, which will replace smaller state-based events. It will be sponsored by Reece Civil and Viadux. The winner will receive a trophy and $1,000 to donate to charity.

“We have previously run this in Queensland, where the winners for the past three competitions have been Trent Roberts and Spencer Stacey,” Ben said.

“Their best time was an impressive 1 minute and 47 seconds. They have hung up their tools and the title will be up for grabs at a national level!”

Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining the Advisory Group. It should involve about 1.5 hours/month for 6 months.
