The top-placed teams will have the opportunity to represent Ontario at the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in October 2023 in Chicago. Hatch is once again providing the treatment facility simulator (SimuWorks™) used in the Process Control event to evaluate operator process knowledge.
