Per usual, they did it up big at the Texas show.

The Texas Ground Water Association (TGWA) held its 57th annual convention and trade show Jan. 27-30, in Waco, Texas. More than 80 exhibitors were on hand at the exhibit hall to display their wares, giving attendees a chance to see some of the latest products and services available in the industry. And contractors looking to stay on the leading edge of industry developments were not disappointed as a complete range of continuing education classes were offered - everything from basic electrical concepts and constant pressure systems to rig trouble-shooting and regulatory requirements. Looking ahead to next year, TGWA will fire it up again Jan. 25-28, in Lubbock, Texas.
