FST Co-hosting "Celebrate Waterworks" Event
May 1, 2014
BOSTON, Massachusetts – Fay, Spofford & Thorndike (FST), in partnership with New England water system component supplier Ti-SALES, Inc., is helping to "Celebrate Waterworks!" at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum on Monday, June 9. The event, which also serves to recognize FST’s 100th Anniversary in business, is being held in conjunction with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE) at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
FST and Ti-SALES are inviting clients, friends and other industry professionals to an evening of celebration at the historic site along the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. The event runs from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm at the museum, with complimentary transportation by trolley provided from and to the Convention Center and specific host hotels. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, hors d’oeuvres and access to the museum exhibits throughout the evening.
The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum, opened in 2011, focuses on the history of water, water pumping and water conservation in Boston. It is located at the site of the original Chestnut Hill pumping station, which dates to 1887, and features three massive steam-powered pumping engines that were critical to supplying water to the city.
FST’s interest in the building is compounded by the fact that the firm completed services from design through construction, start-up and training on the current Chestnut Hill Emergency Pumping Station. The project was completed in 2001 for the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) and is located adjacent to the historic museum building.
The AWWA ACE Convention is returning to Boston for the first time in 40 years. An estimated 11,000 water industry professionals from around the globe are expected to attend the convention, which is in town June 8-12, 2014. Former New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani is the keynote speaker.
