Workshop and Trade Show

Westchester Water Works Conference, Inc. Annual Workshop and Trade Show
Westchester Water Works Conference represents, serves, and educates domestic water operators and their associate members in Westchester County New York. A primary goal of the conference is to provide continuing education workshops that allow member to retain their New York State water operator certification. Every member operator must complete a set amount of credit hours within a 3-year period to remain current.

Each year, during the fall, a trade show and education workshop is held to bring municipal and private water operators together with various vendors who have water related products and services. Classes are held throughout the day in various water related subjects that bring the operator up to date with new technology. Existing, standard operating procedures and methods are reviewed as part of keeping the operators current. Each New York State operator certification holder, in good standing with the Westchester Water Works Conference are given 4 contact hours for attending the trade show and classes.
