To recognize excellence in wastewater treatment operations, maintenance, laboratory, safety and collection systems personnel. This year?s competition will be held at the OWEA 2017 Technical Conference and Expo.

The winning Ohio team will represent Ohio at WEFTEC in Chicago.
The competition will be limited to the first 12 teams registered. The two divisions function as follows: Both divisions compete "head to head" in all five events. There are no apparent differences in the competition. At the completion of the competition, teams are sorted according to division and then ranked based on a score. A team's division status will be announced or posted.

Division I (D1) and Division II (D2) Definitions:

Traditionally D1 is composed of previous winners of the D2 and D1 contests, or for any other team(s) that chooses to move up to compete in this division. D2 is traditionally for "new" teams and/or previous year(s) non-winning teams. Teams should apply to the division for which they believe they should complete. However, to balance competition within the divisions and to improve the overall quality of the competition, a final decision of the appropriate division will be determined by the Event Coordinators and the Operations Challenge Chairperson(s) the day prior to the contest. In no case will 2016/2017 D1 or D2 winning teams be permitted to compete in D2 for 2017.
