James A. Epp
KsAWWA Chair


Thank you for visiting KSAWWA website!
It is an honor and privilege to serve as Chair of the Kansas Section AWWA. The Kansas water industry is full of good hearted hard working people. The 7th Annual Joint Conference was a success and I would like to thank everyone involved, from planning to participation. We hope the value of training, networking, and vender demonstration was everything you expected in a conference. How about that bowling night! We hope to do the same next year or something just as fun to provide an opportunity to have some fun, relax and socialize. We will also continue to provide quality training and technical presentations. We want this event to be something you look forward to every year.

I look forward to working with everyone as we start a new year and the planning of the 8th Annual Joint Conference to be held in Topeka, August 30-September 1, 2016. KsAWWA Chair Elect Lester Estelle ( ) and KWEA Vice President David Hauser ( ) will be organizing the 2016 event. Any suggestions that you may have on sessions or activities can be directed to them. Fred Jones, Chair of the Operator Training Committee and its members will be organizing operator training throughout the year. Anyone interested in being involved with any committee should contact me at or Hank Boyer at .

Again thanks for your support of KsAWWA and let's have some fun. I wish you all a safe and productive year to come.
