The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is announcing the 2022 WEF Published Papers and Education Awards, which recognize WEF members for their significant impact in promoting awareness and understanding of water issues through the development of peer-reviewed research, public outreach, and academic curricula.
WEF is also announcing the recipients of the 2022 WEF Operator Scholarship program, which provides up to $5,000 each for individuals who are seeking operator education, training, or certification to enter the industry or to advance their knowledge, skills, abilities, or license.
“WEF is proud of these members for their valuable research, which contributes broadly to water management and is critical to the future of the water sector,” says WEF Executive Director Walt Marlowe. “WEF also appreciates our members’ accomplishments in promoting awareness and understanding of water issues through public education initiatives. Additionally, we are excited to support the professional development of operators, who are truly the backbone of our sector.”

About the Water Environment Federation
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a not-for-profit technical and educational organization of 30,000 individual members and 75 affiliated Member Associations representing water quality professionals around the world. Since 1928, WEF and its members have protected public health and the environment. As a global water sector leader, our mission is to connect water professionals; enrich the expertise of water professionals; increase the awareness of the impact and value of water; and provide a platform for water sector innovation.
Previously called the Federation of Sewage Works Associations (1928), the Federation of Sewage and Industrial Wastes Associations (1950), and the Water Pollution Control Federation (1960); the name was changed to the Water Environment Federation in 1991 to reflect an expanded focus of non-point and point sources of pollution.
