WaterOne Meter Reader Wins Meter Madness

Post Date:08/31/2016 1:19 PM

WaterOne is proud to announce that WaterOne Meter Reader Rudy Holden won the statewide Meter Madness competition at the KsAWWA Conference on Tuesday, August 30th.  Meter Madness is a race against the clock to reassemble a functional water meter from a bucket of parts in the fastest time.  Rudy assembled a meter in 1:04 minutes to clinch the title.

This marks WaterOne’s return to the competition in several years.  Meter Services Manager Brian Schade reintroduced the opportunity to WaterOne’s Meter Services department, which includes Meter Readers, Field Technicians, and Meter Repair Technicians.  Internal semi-finals were held to determine who would be sent to the state competition.  Among those competing were JK Haubein, Michael Calderon, and Chris Cowan.  Chris went on to represent WaterOne in Topeka with Rudy.

“Meter Madness promotes camaraderie and team-building,” Schade said.  “Rudy’s victory brought a lot of excitement to the Meter Services department. It’s a reflection of the excellence and pride in our work that WaterOne employees show every day.”
