WEFTEC Wants to Celebrate Your Ingenious Fixes


WEFTEC 2016 will host the Fifth Annual Ingenuity Contest. This competition recognizes that some innovations come not from a research lab but from the need to tackle a persistent problem with nothing more than the materials at hand and a hearty dose of ingenuity with a tweak here or a little fix there.

WEFTEC will showcase these imaginative, inventive, and effective ways you’ve found to overcome those pesky problems. Selected inventors will be invited to give 10-minute presentations. 

The competition is open to all clever ideas related to treatment processes, collection systems, laboratory practices, stormwater, administration, human resources, you name it.

The bottom line: Even if you’re not sure that your innovation qualifies, submit it. Even if you can’t come to WEFTEC, please submit your idea as we will share them with lots of people!

So, throw together a roughly 1-page description of the problem you faced and the fix you found. If your invention or idea can be photographed, snap a picture and include that. Submitters do not have to write a full WEFTEC paper. What you provide in your submission is all that is needed in writing.

The Ingenuity Content submission portal is open now until May 26, 2016.
