Spring Schedule - Rural Water Shows in the Northwest
Well, it's actually a bit of winter schedule, but this winter needs more spring.
We are kicking off our trade show schedule by being in two places: Fargo, North Dakota and Great Falls, Montana. In both cases, we are attending the State Rural Water Show.
At the Fargo Rural Water Show, SRS Crisafulli's Troy Fercho, Dredge Sales and Rental, will be making a presentation: Wastewater Lagoon Dredging Process.
The A Team will then travel to Des Moines, Iowa, for their Rural Water Show (February 24 - 26), and swing by the Pumper Show in Indianapolis. Let us know if you want to meet up. We are traveling lightly at the Pumper Show - you will not find us on the Exhibitors List.
In March, we are working the Idaho Rural Water Show (March 12 - 14) in Boise, and then at the end of April, we will be at the California Rural Water Show at Lake Tahoe. We can't wait for that show - as it will actually be spring then, even if California is experiencing a drought.
Of course, we will also be at the Glendive Agri-Tech Exposition at the Eastern Plains Event Center that opens tomorrow, February 7, and continues into Saturday. We are introducing SRS Crisafulli's DUAL-PRO (540/1000) Power Unit at this event. Please stop by. Our original camouflage trailer pump will also be on display outdoors.
In many areas of North Dakota, water used for domestic, municipal, and livestock needs, is of insufficient quantity and/or quality. This has inconvenienced the residents of small towns and rural areas, as well as retarded the overall economic growth of North Dakota. The formation of rural water systems has helped to bring clean, safe water to many of these areas throughout North Dakota.
Quoting from a recent press release in the Idaho Statesman: "Idaho Gov. Otter touted a study in his State of the State address to look at raising the height of the nearly century-old Arrowrock Dam to increase the Treasure Valley's water supply. But if the 348-foot dam is raised, it will be flood control that drives the decision and the millions of dollars in federal spending the project would need... an estimated $10 billion worth of homes, buildings and other structures lie in the Boise River flood plain. Water supply is a future concern for Idaho's farmers, but flooding is an every-year worry for anyone living along the river."
