Saving time, saving money, and making tasks easier and safer is the goal of the annual Gimmicks and Gadgets competition. The contest is open to ALL areas of the environmental field: collection systems, safety, laboratory, pretreatment, plant operations and maintenance, and biosolids. KWEA is promoting this competition within the environmental field which provides an opportunity for you and/or your co-worker(s) to present your innovative ideas, devices or procedures to your fellow operators and workers that save time and money, is safe, and helps improve your tasks. All places receive one full year membership to KWEA.
Water for People Fundraising Auction
Around the world, 1.1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water, and 2.6 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities. Every day, nearly 6,000 people who share our planet die from water-related illnesses, and the vast majority are children. Water for People helps people in developing countries improve their quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and health and hygiene education programs.
The KsAWWA & KWEA Water for People Committees will offer donation items for auction during the conference. One hundred percent of the funds will go directly to Water for People.
