Awards

There are over 20 categories for CWEA awards. Each one has been designed to honor exceptional CWEA members and 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.

Nomination forms are available online starting July 1st.
(NOTE - NEW ONLINE FORMS ARE BEING EVALUATED AND WILL BE POSTED BEFORE THE END OF JULY)

Awards are given at the Local Section level first; recipients then advance to the State competition. CWEA will forward any State winners in categories corresponding with WEF's award categories to WEF by April 1st.
