Awards Program

One of AWWMA's ongoing efforts is to recognize the importance of the professionals responsible for the delivery of quality water and wastewater utility services. These people include not only the operators who are directly in charge of hands-on day to day utility operations, but also the utility managers, supervisors, laboratory technicians, engineers, scientists, and educators who all contribute to this effort.

To provide this recognition, the Association hosts an awards program at the Statewide Annual Conference, where individuals and/or facilities deserving recognition receive awards at that event.Award categories for the AWARDS PROGRAM. If you are notified that you or your nominee has been selected and you operate a Small System in Alaska, contact AWWMA to find out how you can receive your conference registration complimentary (limited to 1 awardee from each small system)
