Register for the First-Ever Remote Operations Challenge Competition

August 6, 2020


Operations Challenge – the high-energy, teams-based skills competition that each year draws the global wastewater operations community’s best talent to the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Virginia) Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) – will take on a new form for 2020 to coincide with the digital WEFTEC Connect format.

Coinciding with WEFTEC Connect, Operations Challenge 2020 will take on a remote format. Teams of two will compete in abridged versions of the Process Control, Laboratory, and Collections Systems events beginning Monday, Oct. 5. Image courtesy of Kieffer Photography

The modified competition will feature abbreviated versions of three events: Process Control, Laboratory, and Collections Systems. Via video conference, Operations Challenge teams will compete in each event from their homes or workplaces using their own equipment. With two people participating in each event, all teams will complete Process Control at the same time on Monday, Oct. 5 and complete the Laboratory and Collections Systems events at pre-scheduled times over the following days. Detailed event descriptions will be posted soon on the WEF Operations Challenge page.

Each team must be affiliated with a regional WEF Member Association. Because no WEF Member Associations have been able to hold regional qualifying tournaments this year, each WEF Member Association may sponsor as many teams as desired for the WEFTEC Connect competition. Additionally, this year’s competition will feature two new divisions that accommodate first-time competitors as well as Operations Challenge alumni who have not competed in the last five years.  

Registration for Operations Challenge 2020 costs $100 per team and is open until Sept. 11, 2020. Visit the WEF Operations Challenge page for more details.
