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 FWEA and the WEF believe that individuals and groups should be recognized for meritorious achievements in our industry. Awards are given in a variety of categories, including safety, engineering, operations, public education, public relations, management, students and young professionals, laboratory expertise and service to the organization. You may nominate yourself or another person or group for these awards, using the appropriate FWEA or WEF nomination forms. FWEA Awards are presented annually at the Florida Water Resources Conference. Most are due March 3, 2017.
