WEFTEC is the world’s largest annual water quality exhibition where Member Associations proudly select their best Student Chapter Design Team to participate in the annual WEFTEC Design Competition. Cedar Engineering participated in the Wastewater Design Competition in which they presented their exceptional design for processing of Biosolids.

Student Design Competitions are intended to promote real world design experience for students interested in pursuing a career and/or education in water and wastewater engineering and sciences. The competition promotes interest and skills that will prove to be extremely valuable as the students enter the professional world.

Last year, the EVEN team won 3rd Place at National WEFTEC Student Design Competition
