California wastewater professionals, facilities and
agencies. The program seeks to recognize outstanding achievements within the wastewater field,
improve the professional status of all personnel working
in the wastewater industry and related fields and stimulate
public awareness of the importance of wastewater treatment
to public health and the water environment.
