Hydrant Hysteria is a competition where teams of two assemble a hydrant as fast as possible. The winning team(s) will be sent to Denver, CO for the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE19) where they will represent New England and NEWWA in the national competition. Competitors must be NEWWA members to participate. Travel expenses (flights, hotel, and per diem) are covered by the generosity of the Hydrant Hysteria Sponsors.
