                                                     Water, Water, Could be Everywhere!
                                            It’s our 4th Aging Infrastructure Simulation Contest
Here’s the way it works . . .
Our	water	delivery	systems	are	aging	and	often	they’re	said	to	be	held	together	with	“paper	clips,	band-aids,	and	chewing	gum.”		Many	
water	department	personnel	are	pretty	darn	good	at	holding	things	together	in	this	manner.		Here’s	your	opportunity	to	demonstrate	your	
skills	or	discover	how	difficult	it	is	working	with	only	what	you’ve	got.	
Your team’s goal is to construct the tallest elevated tank on site in the shortest time with available materials.
RULES FOR YOUR TEAM AND THE JUDGES
1.	 All	construction	materials	and	water	will	be	provided	to	each	team	at	11:45	AM	on	Tuesday,	September	21st	at	the	start	of	the	event.

5.	 All	teams	must	register	at	the	conference	registration	desk	before	4:00	PM	on	Monday,	September	20th.		(So	the	judges	can	secure

6.	 Each	team	should	bring	one	standard	X-acto	knife	with	#11	blade	to	modify	the	provided	construction	materials.		The	knife	may	not

	    i.	 12	toothpicks	(flat).

JUDGING
A	team	arriving	with	less	than	two	members	cannot	participate;	last	minute	subs	are	OK.		Each	team	will	be	given	30	minutes	to	construct

top	rim	of	the	cup.		Each	team’s	time	for	completion	of	construction	will	be	recorded	by	the	judges	and	used	for	the	purpose	of	breaking	a

presentations,	video	productions,	school	presentations,	poster	and	essay	contests,	cable	television	productions,	and	any	
other	creative	way	of	communicating	with	consumers.
