Evoqua Water Technologies Corp. announced a joint community program with the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins to help build a stronger connection with youth hockey associations across greater Pittsburgh and underscore the important role water plays in all aspects of daily life.

As part of the program, called “A Great Day for Our Ice,” Evoqua will provide vials for local youth hockey associations to collect ice shavings from their home rinks. The shavings will be collected during the Penguins’ annual Free Game for Kids, which will be held September 28 at PPG Paints Arena. Once the melted ice from local youth hockey rinks is filtered and treated using Evoqua systems, the water will then be transferred to the Evoqua Zamboni and smoothed into PPG Paints ice surface.
