It’s a new year. Marty McFly came to the future three months ago. Now it’s your turn.

The 2016 Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport Show is your ticket to the future of this industry, and the trucks and equipment on display can push your utility just as far forward in time as Doc Brown’s DeLorean.

This year’s show is slated for Feb. 17-20 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. It’ll be my fifth time in Indy, and I’m looking forward to it as always. I remember the trucks rolling in and the show floor taking shape leading up to that first show. It was impressive to see it all come together. I was even more impressed by some of the people I met, and that’s what continues to make it most interesting to me.

The WWETT Show is like all of our publications rolled into one and brought to life at the Indiana Convention Center. Everything you read about in these pages is there, from the trucks and tools to the people and perspectives. You’ll find countless ways to improve your utility.

There are so many stories walking around on the floor, new stories every year. So many people who are pushing their utilities forward. So many different forms of success. So much insight. It’s fun to hear those stories. It provides perspective on how the industry is progressing and gives me a glimpse of what future issues of Municipal Sewer & Water will hold.  

The WWETT Show is also full of opportunities for your utility. In addition to learning from your peers’ successes, the education sessions alone are well worth the cost of attending. Your operators will have the opportunity to learn about collections system management, cleaning nozzle technology, CCTV inspection, controlling I&I, and so much more that can positively affect the work you do day in and day out.

Oh, and there’s also some pretty cool trucks, and all the latest tools and technology to make you more effective and efficient on the job. From hand tools to hydroexcavators, it’s all there. If you’re looking for ways to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your cleaning and maintenance operations, you won’t find a better source.

You’ll find a preview of the show in this issue of MSW. From Education Day to the Industry Appreciation Party, and all the tools and trucks in between, there’s a lot to see and do.

If you haven’t registered or begun planning your time in Indy, visit for all the information you’ll need. It’s a great way to help build your business, and there’s plenty of fun to be had, too.

And while you’re at the show, feel free to track me down. I’d like to hear what you have to say about the show, the magazine, and most importantly, the work you’re doing and how you’re moving your utility forward. After all, that’s a goal we both share.

I hope I see you at the show. It’s the future of this industry.
