Junior Water Quality
Knowing the impact children and students have on the quality of our environment, CWEA supports these key programs aimed at helping students learn about the wastewater treatment process and industry:
  • Stockholm Junior Water Prize -a prestigious youth award for water science research projects.
    California's Joyce Chai was awarded the 2008 International Stockholm Junior Water Prize this month. Her paper, “Modeling the Toxic Effects of Silver Nanoparticles under Varying Environmental Conditions”, will be published in the Fall 2008 issue of the Wastewater Professional. Joyce is the first Californian whose paper has ever taken first place at the international level. Congratulations Joyce!
  • Sewer Science -a hands-on lab for high school students about municipal wastewater treatment.
  • CWEA's Kirt Brooks Memorial Water Environment Scholarship Program -an annual scholarship program for students studying the water environment field.
