Hydrant Hysteria is a competition where teams of two assemble a hydrant as fast as possible. Competitors must be NEWWA members to participate. The winning team will receive medals and their name engraved on the NEWWA Hydrant Hysteria trophy. Amazon gifts cards will be given to the top three teams. And of course, bragging rights are up for grabs!
PRACTICE HYDRANTS are being provided this year by Kennedy Valve Co. (K -81).
Full competition rules will be provided to each team. In addition, a Wavier, Release, and
Assumption of Risk form must be completed by each participant before being allowed to compete.
Any questions about the Hydrant Hysteria competition may be directed to Demetri Vidalis, Innovations Committee chair.
