The Public Works and Engineering Public utilities division recently competed in the Texas section of the American Water Works Association Conference.
Gloria Guerra and Daryl Pope (both with TCEQ water operator licenses) defeated several Texas competitors, earning third place in the TOP OPs (top operators) competition.
According to Gloria Guerra, "The City of Houston team made history and helped us earn not just statewide, but also nationwide recognition. For the first time, the City of Houston was able to win and bring home a very difficult achievement. After multiple decades of trying, and with much hard work, studying -- even off duty -- we were finally able to light up the board."
