After a great deal of careful consideration and consultation, AWWA has determined that circumstances do not permit us to host ACE21 in-person in San Diego. Because planning for ACE competitions begins several months out – including planning and hosting competitions at Sections – we are announcing the cancellation of 2021 Pipe Tapping, Meter Madness, Hydrant Hysteria, and Top Ops competitions at this time. The Best of the Best Water Taste Test is currently under evaluation, and an update regarding the status of this competition will be provided at a later date.

For your reference, below are the rules. No rule changes will be made prior to ACE22. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!
