More than 230 people participated in the Minnesota Rural Water Association (MRWA) 6th Annual MRWA Operator Equipment Expo on Sept. 24, in Waconia, Minn., at the Carver County Fairgrounds.

The Expo is not an exhibit hall; it is a live, hands-on demonstration show with demos geared towards water and wastewater operators, managers and personnel using heavy equipment. Attendees were able to try out the products and heavy equipment and see for themselves how these products work. They also could choose to participate in the heavy equipment contests.

Heavy equipment for attendees to test drive was provided by Arnolds Inc. from Kimball, Minn., and RDO Equipment Company from Burnsville, Minn.

Attendees also had a chance to learn about the newest products and technology in the industry. Attendees received up to six certification hours (water and/or wastewater) for full-day attendance.

There was lots of training opportunities to take advantage of such as valve exercising, flow meters, tapping pvc pipe, emergency hydraulic pumping equipment, groundwater well demo, water main flushing, chemical feed, fire hydrant rebuild, GIS tools, poly pigging, a chance to participate in a skid loader rodeo skills contest, a backhoe skills contest, mini-excavator contest and other all-day events such as line tracing demo, water tower inspection services demo and a sewer nozzle demo.

Next year’s Expo is set for Sept. 23, 2015 at the Carver County Fairgrounds.
