Burke Award (WEF)

The Burke Award is awarded by the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and recognizes a municipal or industrial wastewater facility for establishing and maintaining an active and effective safety program. This award was established in 1982 in honour of George W. Burke, Jr., for his many years of service to both the water environment field and WEF as staff manager of technical services. Mr. Burke was instrumental in developing WEF's annual safety survey and assisting in the production of several safety training aids and promotional packets.


The purpose of this award is to encourage an active and effective safety program in municipal and industrial wastewater facilities.
