The Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) began its existence in 1941 under the name Florida Sewerage and Industrial Waste Association. Subsequent name changes over the years are reflective of the evolution of public attitudes about wastewater management and the environment. Membership has grown over the years and today our membership exceeds 1,300 clean water professionals. Our local chapters, student chapters, committees and Utility Council help to unite Florida’s clean water professionals responsible for protecting the environment through education programs, professional development and promotion of sound public policy.
Over 70 years after its creation, FWEA continues to make historic differences in the advancement of the water environment, science and technology, making it a leading professional water organization in Florida. Our history says a lot about the leadership, dedication and hard work of the members of this organization

The Value of Water Coalition and WEF are releasing and promoting the use of the new public awareness campaign and toolkit: “What’s the Value of Water?” WEF has been a partner in the Coalition since it began, and thanks to the input and review from our House of Delegates Value of Water (VOW) workgroup and the Public Communication and Outreach Committee, the long-awaited toolkit is available for Member Association and Utility use. The education campaign aims to shine a light on water—our most precious, but often invisible, resource. The toolkit was born out of collaboration, and that the Coalition was able to draw on the knowledge and experience of its members. Click the link for access to the toolkits.
