She says the competition also gives water departments a chance to pick up better practices from each other.

“It’s a nice place to come together to see all the different kinds of water that’s throughout North America,” she said.

The Philadelphia Water Department failed to place in the top tier of water utilities.

Greeley, Colorado would take home first place.
