This is the 91st Annual Conference for the Rocky Mountain Section of AWWA and the 81st Annual Conference for the Rocky Mountain Water Environment Association. This Conference is filled with very informative presentations and a number of additional entertaining and educational activities.
The Rocky Mountain Water Conference 2019 Exhibit Hall and Sponsorship registration is now open! This year’s conference will be held Sep 8-11 at the Keystone Events Center in Keystone, Colorado. Over 900 attendees are expected including utilities, managers, operators, vendors, engineers, regulators, students, and others. We are preparing an excellent technical program and are continuing many of the exhibit hall and networking features that have made this conference the premier water industry event. In addition, this year we will have expanded expo hours, an exciting keynote speaker during Monday’s opening session (to be announced), the 5k Fun Run on Sunday, a networking event on Tuesday evening, and many other exciting conference features. And of course, the popular golf tournament will be held on Sunday at theKeystone River Course. We hope to see you in Keystone!

The Conference will be hosting its fourth annual “Is Your Toilet Running?” 5K Fun Run/Walk. You will not want to miss this fun event! The run starts at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 8, 2019. The name of the 5K was chosen to highlight water conservation: • A running toilet wastes valuable drinking water and places additional demands on the water supply. • A running toilet increases hydraulic loading and reduces organic loading in wastewater, both of which lead to less efficient operation of a water resource recovery facility.
The Fun Run/Walk is a fundraising event for the RMWEA Public Education Committee. All proceeds help support the Stockholm Junior Water Prize. This event generates funds through sponsorship signs which are posted along the race course. The start and finish line signs are $200 each, and the 1K, 2K, 3K, and 4K signs are $100 each. Please contact Brenda Varner for sponsorship information at bvarner@englewoodCO.gov by Monday, July 15th.
All participants will meet at the Keystone Conference Center registration desk at 1:30 pm and then walk over to the Start/Finish line just south of Keystone Lodge. The run will be an out-and-back course on the paved path adjacent to the Snake River. A map of the route can be previewed here: 2019 Run/Walk MAP.
Water will be provided at the start/finish line. All participants are invited to join the group for a post run happy hour and prize drawing at the Keystone Lodge’s Bighorn Bistro at 3:30 pm. Participants who register by July 15th will be guaranteed a FREE Fun Run/Walk T-shirt!
The RMWEA Annual WEFTEC Reception returns to Chicago on Sunday, September 22, 2019. This year the Reception is sponsored by Leopold, WEDECO, Sanitaire, Walker Process Equipment, Singer Valve and ISI West.
The WEFTEC Reception is a popular event, giving the conference attendees a place to connect with colleagues from the RMWEA and to wish our three (3) Operations Challenge Teams good luck in their competitions.
This year the venue will be the Timothy O’Toole’s Pub, located just steps away from the Magnificent Mile and famed Navy Pier. There will be a buffet of Hors D’oeuvres and a hosted bar of house drinks, beers and sodas generously provided by our sponsors.
We will begin the festivities at 3pm (local time) and run until 6pm with TVs setup to watch Football. We will have a football pool. Squares will be randomly drawn to represent the score of the game. Each square is worth $5 and we will payout four (4) winners throughout the game (one each quarter) with the proceeds split 50/50 between the winner and the Operations Challenge Committee.
For those who have attended in the past, you know this is a fun atmosphere with plenty of food and drink.
The RMWEA Lab Practices Committee, along with Rocky Mountain Water Quality Analysts Association (RMWQAA), is excited to offer a comprehensive Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) training October 16 and 17.
The QA/QC in Environmental Laboratories class is presented by Alloway, a full-service environmental laboratory with 37 years’ experience in water and wastewater. Speakers will be Marcy Bolek, co-owner and President, and Amy Staley, Senior Analyst/ Project manager.
This is a two-day training that can also be divided into one day trainings. Day 1 (Oct 16) is a basic QA/QC course covering QA/QC basics and emphasizing practical topics that operators and analysts require most. Day 2 (Oct 17) is an advanced QA/QC class for those that have previously mastered the basics or have taken the Day 1 training. This course covers in-depth QA/QC issues including sample handling, document control, precision and accuracy, MDLs, calibration, training, ethics, corrective actions, and more.
The trainings will be at Metro Wastewater Reclamation District, 6450 York in Denver. Registration will open soon on the RMWEA Lab Practices Committee website.
