What better way to honor CWEA’s Executive Director of 17 years than a matching grant challenge to the Kirt Brooks Scholarship?

CWEA Past President Connie Leonard (L) and CWEA President Kevin Calderwood (R) award Elizabeth Allan with the 2019 Bedell Award

During Elizabeth’s tenure:

  • Membership grew to 10,300 members
  • Technical Certification Program grew to 6,800 certifications held
  • Developing training for Waste Discharge Requirements. The 2006 WDR was a development the collection systems community calls as important as the Clean Water Act
  • Developing the AWT Operator certification in partnership with AWWA’s California-Nevada Section

What is the Kirt Brooks Scholarship?

The Kirt Brooks Memorial Water Environment Scholarship provides annual scholarships for individuals attending a College, University, Community College or Technical Trade School and pursuing a course of study related to the Water Environment field.

This year, we awarded over $25,000 to 10 students. Recipients must be members of CWEA or sponsored by CWEA members.
