Sewer and Water Art Gallery (SWAG) 
September 10-11, VBCC Exhibit Hall
The Sewer and Water Art Gallery is BACK! The exhibit is a “museum” of things that Virginia sanitary sewer, stormwater,
and drinking water industry professionals have encountered in the field and found to be interesting, confusing, or downright CRAZY! Items from municipalities across Virginia will be on display with the goal of providing entertainment, education, and enlightenment about some of the unique challenges faced by our industry professionals.
Gallery visitors will get to vote for their favorite items, and awards will be given on Wednesday afternoon to the top three exhibits based on visitor voting. So, make sure to get your vote in early! You can also try to guess what the mystery item thing is to be entered in a raffle for a chance to win an awesome prize!
