June 19, 2012

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Birmingham Water Works Pipe Tapping Team and Top Operators brought home first place victories at the American Water Works Association’s Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE12), held in Dallas, Texas last week.

AWWA, the nation’s largest water industry association, hosts the conference to give members an opportunity to share knowledge and information that advances the treatment, distribution and operations of drinking water systems.

Representatives from all sections of the country competed to win national honors in various water industry standard practices.

BWWB’s Tapping Team brought home their ninth first-place title this year. The team now has four world tapping titles under their belt. The Top Ops brought home its second first-place victory.

Because of this year’s national win, they will have the opportunity to compete for their fifth world title in England this fall.
