WEF Recognizes Excellence in Water Quality Through New Fellow Program
Program honors the professional achievements, stature and contributions of WEF members to the
ALEXANDRIA, Va. The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is proud to announce the first
recipients of the WEF Fellow Recognition Program. Approved by the Board of Trustees last July, the
new program honors the professional achievements, stature, and contributions of WEF members in
various fields of water expertise. A total of 17 WEF members were approved by the Board to be
honored during this inaugural year.
WEF takes a great deal of pride in the vast knowledge base of our members and in honor of that,
felt it was very important to provide a distinguished recognition program, said WEF President
Jeanette Brown. We are very pleased to celebrate not only the personal achievements of this years'
Fellows but also the invaluable role WEF has as a leading water quality organization.
The Fellow Recognition Program recognizes professional accomplishments in the professional
segments served by WEF, and reinforces WEF's reputation as a valuable water quality resource,
due in large part to the expertise of its diverse membership. Some areas of recognition include
design, education, operations, regulation, research, and utility management/leadership.
