FWEA’s David W. York Water Reuse Awards
In 1992, the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) established the David W. York Water Reuse Awards to recognize outstanding water reuse projects in Florida. Projects are evaluated by members of FWEA’s Water Reuse Committee based on environmental quality management, water reuse system, and public education/information aspects of the submittal. The FWEA Water Reuse Committee will also nominate the Florida winners for consideration for national awards presented by the WateReuse Association at the annual WateReuse Symposium.
Since then, awards for Reuse Person of the Year and Reuse Customer of the Year have also been awarded. For 2015, the FWEA Water Reuse Committee is adding an award category for Reuse Project of the Year to recognize a reuse project which may have multiple utilities and organizations involved. Congratulations to all of the award recipients of this year and from previous years. This year’s awards were presented during the FWEA Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon at the Florida Water Resources Conference in Orlando on Tuesday, April 8, 2014.
