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 also will 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, Reuse Customer of the Year, and most recently Reuse Project of the year have also been awarded.
