On June 11, Beaver Water District’s Top Ops Team competed and placed fifth in the national Top Ops competition at the annual American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) conference in Denver. Top Ops is the “college bowl” for water operators. Teams compete to answer technical questions related to the operations of water facilities. Join us in congratulating BWD’s team members, all of whom are Plant Operator IIs for BWD: (from left) Steven Caudle of Lowell, Dustin Mayhew of Springdale, and Gabe Frost of Siloam Springs. Nikki Holloway of Springdale (far right), BWD Laboratory Analyst, serves as the team’s coach. BWD Laboratory Supervisor, Mindi Dearing of Farmington, serves as Chair of AWWA’s Top Ops Subcommittee (not pictured).
