WEFTEC attracts approximately 20,000 water industry professionals who will participate in hundreds of events, including educational workshops & sessions, tours of local treatment facilities, and the community service project hosted by our WEF Students & Young Professionals Committee. The water quality industry is responsible for treating water so that it is not a threat to public health, protecting fragile ecosystems through pollution and sediment control, plus more!

The conference features a special opportunity for local students who are interested in or currently studying in the areas of Biology, Civil/Environmental Engineering, Technology, Mathematics, Natural/Earth Sciences, Sustainability, and Public Health to experience a “Weekend at WEFTEC.” Check this link for more program details.

In addition to WEFTEC, the Water Environment Federation has a dedicated membership network of students and young professionals who truly believe in being stewards for the global water community. The WEF student membership package is designed for the specific needs of students — who will become future water quality professionals — as it offers WEF student members a solid foundation on which to build their careers, develop leadership skills and gain instant credibility with water quality leaders.

Learn more about WEF student membership here.

Even if you are unable to attend WEFTEC for a full weekend, take advantage of visiting its  exhibition floor where more than 1,000 exhibitors display the latest in water quality research technology and services. The exhibition floor is complimentary for students, young professionals and academic professionals and requires a simple online registration prior to entry. Visit  for more information.
