2022 Operator Expos Recap

Southern - Huntingburg, IN / Northern - Akron, IN

Thursday, June 9, 2022

Our Southern & Northern Expos held last month were both big successes, and though the weather didn't cooperate for us each afternoon, we got in full mornings of demonstrations, contests, a great lunch, and of course, seeing old friends & making new ones!


We had over 250 people in attendance at each expo! Both events featured our 'famous' hog roast, graciously donated and cooked by Water Solutions Unlimited.


The Meter Toss, Backhoe Rodeos, and the Expoo Royal Flush contests provided chances to win cash and prizes, and didn't disappoint on the fun! 1st Place for each contest won $50 cash, and 2nd Place won an Alliance camping chair. The winner of the 2nd Regional Water Taste Test was Garrett Water Works!
