Blog Post Teaser


WATERCON is the largest gathering of water professionals in Illinois and is designed to offer exceptional educational and networking opportunities to increase your effectiveness on the job. 

The conference will include sessions and learning opportunities where you can gather tangible takeaways to bring back home on a variety of topics important to your community, such as potable water, wastewater,  and storm water.

Outside of the sessions, there will be countless opportunities for you to meet and build relationships with other water industry people, who may serve as key contacts for both present and future initiates.  The opportunity to make valuable connections at this conference is consistently stated by past attendees as one of the greatest assets.

The exhibit hall, with over 200 vendors, will have information on a variety of industry products and services.  Being able to compare the quality, price and service of competing vendors, all in one place, will be a time saver in the future when the need to purchase presents itself.

With such a great offering of educational content and relationship-building opportunities in one place, having representatives at the conference can afford your team of leaders access to top strategies and best practices that will help reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and build value in various area for your community.

WATERCON is not all work and no play!  Remember to check out the Top Ops Contest – where operators test their knowledge in a Jeopardy style setting; Hydrant Hysteria – where competitors race against the clock to put back together an exploded full-size fire hydrant; and of course, Tapping & Meter Madness.  And, if you are feeling lucky, drop in on Casino Night and win fabulous prizes and the admiration of your friends and co-workers!

We look forward to seeing you in March!
