WE ARE ROAD WARRIORS

 

Once recognized as the fiercest beasts roaming the wild open wetlands of Asia, water buffalos have earned their reputation as aggressive warriors able to travel long distances and engage in dangerous stampedes. 
 

Still stampeding, the modern Water Buffalo now earns respect roaming the winding miles of U.S. highway on the back of a Harley Road King or a Vintage Indian Chief or maybe even a Yamaha Star. These Water Buffalos are bikers - but not just any bikers - a special herd of motorcycle riding water professionals from Arizona. Yes, they are still hunting for water, but these days the search for supply is typically sought through legislation and state regulations. The Arizona Water Buffalos formed in 2004 when Brown and Caldwell's Water Resources Practice Leader Harold Thomas in Phoenix joined a handful of other water industry leaders on a ride to a water conference. The gang had such a great time that they decided to form an official club and eventually settled on the name The Water Buffalos.

Each year, they reunite to ride to the Annual Tri-State Seminar (Arizona, California, and Nevada), which features sessions on water, wastewater and security issues.
