The Water Industry Hall of Fame perpetuates the memory of those living and deceased who have made the most significant contributions to the field of public water supply.

To be eligible for the award, a candidate should be substantially retired, with achievements, character, and professionalism well established, be beyond the age of 60, and have been an AWWA member for 15 years. The candidate’s influence upon the water supply profession must still be felt in the practices, inventions, or literature for which he/she was responsible. Contributions to the water supply profession may have been in any of the many facets of disciplines of the field as long as they are significant and have stood the test of time.
