The conference culminates with the Awards Ceremony and Luncheon. During the ceremony, NEWEA’s leadership presents recipients with NEWEA, Water Environment Federation Member Association, and EPA Region One Awards.
Wayne Elliott, PE received the Alfred E. Peloquin Award, which honors an individual who has shown a high level of interest in performance in wastewater operations in each of the six New England states, and who has made a significant contribution to the wastewater field in such areas as improvements to the environment, cost effective plant operations, public relations, innovative process controls, industrial pretreatment, training, Association contributions and related activities. The purpose of this award is to recognize an individual whose personal service has contributed to excellence in plant operations either directly at a treatment plant, or indirectly through assistance to plant operations personnel.
“We’re pleased to have awarded Wayne Elliott with the Alfred E. Peloquin Award,” said NEWEA Executive Director Mary Barry. “Professionals in the water industry work tirelessly, often without recognition, to protect, preserve, and manage New England’s water environment and access to clean water. Additionally, as a volunteer association, so much of what NEWEA does relies on the involvement of our members and volunteers. This award gives us the opportunity to recognize all that Wayne Elliott has contributed to NEWEA and the New England water industry.”
