A SPOTLIGHT ON UNSUNG HEROES
PROFESSIONAL OPERATORS CELEBRATED AT POWER LAS VEGAS


The protectors of our water rarely find themselves, or strive to be, at the center of attention. But operators are always there… behind the scenes… taking the utmost care of our most precious resource. When a problem arises they spring into action at a moment’s notice, day or night, and often resolve issues before the public is even aware. They are our communities’ unsung heroes, and the Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) was proud to honor eight of these industry leaders on AWWA ACE18’s Celebration Stage for POWER Las Vegas!
