New England Water Well Association's show was action-packed.

There were lots of rigs on display – and even more hula hoops, which were hugely popular.

If you could tap the energy of the whirlwind that was the New England Water Well Association’s annual expo, you could power the region for weeks. The unrelenting pace of the action at the Mar. 21-22 event in Marlborough, Mass., was not for the faint of heart as a full slate of seminars and the bustling trade show floor left little time for catching your breath.

Kristin and Kayla Auger help their dad Ernest (Water Treatment Inc., Putnam, Conn.) renew his National Driller subscription.
Educational program topics included hearing safety and machine operation, water treatment business strategies, DOT regulations and biodegradable fluids. Certification exams were administered, and Dave Hanson of Design Water Technologies delivered his “2003 – The Year of the Professional” presentation.

As for the Friday evening social, you might have heard some stories, but nothing after 11:00 p.m. can be independently verified. Suffice it to say that everyone had an extra-good time.
