Water is one of the most precious commodities on earth, which is why protecting its quality is so important. The Water Treatment Competition has been increasing in popularity within the conference lineup and the 2011 competition will be no different. Schools from outside the Mid-Pacific Region have traveled to compete since its introduction to the conference a few years back. Because the Water Treatment Competition has gained so much popularity, regional competitors are now being invited to try out for the national competition.
For the second year, competition rules will be provided by the Water Environment Foundation (WEF), with supplimental content from Sacramento State. Using engineering principles, students are tasked with treating “polluted” water for common water quality problems such as pH and turbidity. The constituents of the “polluted” water, as well as the competition scenario, will be provided by WEF before Thanksgiving 2010. Once the rules are released, more details will be available on this website. Questions about rules and interpretations can be emailed to the Sacramento State University Water Treatment Chair at the email below.
Good luck to all the competitors and we look forward to seeing you in April at Sacramento State!
