Hydrant Hysteria is a competition where teams of two assemble a hydrant as fast as possible. The winning team(s) will be sent to Orlando for the American Water Works Association's Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE20) 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. 

     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.
