Awards and Recognition Programs
The WateReuse Association’s annual Awards for Excellence recognizes individuals and projects that have made significant contributions in support of greater adoption of water reuse. Recipients are successfully advancing the development of alternative water supplies or developing a novel approach to meet water needs through the use of water reuse systems and/or approaches. Every spring, WateReuse solicits nominations for the annual awards. A panel of industry professional reviews and evaluates the submissions. The awards are presented at the Annual WateReuse Symposium, which occurs in the early fall.
Utility of the Future Today Recognition Program
The Utility of the Future Today Recognition Program honors water resource recovery facilities for community engagement, watershed stewardship, and recovery of resources such as water, energy, and nutrients and to celebrate the achievements of forward-thinking, innovative water utilities that are providing resilient value-added service to communities. The recognition program component was launched in 2016 by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Research Foundation (WRF) and the WateReuse Association (WateReuse), with input from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
