Beaver Water District’s Top Ops Team Places 5th in Nation

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: Steven Caudle of Lowell, Dustin Mayhew of Springdale, Gabe Frost of Siloam Springs. Nikki Holloway of Springdale, 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.
