The 2016 WEF Awards were announced on August 11th, and NWEA’s own Dale Jacobson was awarded the Emerson Distinguished Service Medal.  This award commemorates the service of the first president of the Federation, Charles Alvin Emerson, who served from 1928 to 1941, and was its first honorary member. This award is presented to an individual member of the Water Environment Federation whose contributions to the water environment profession most deserve recognition.

Dale has served both the NWEA and WEF for over 40-years, holding leadership positions in NWEA before serving as WEF Treasurer followed by progressing through the WEF chairs from Vice President through Past President.  He served as WEF President for the 1997-1998 term.  

As a WEF officer, he represented WEF at numerous Member Association meetings, both in North America, as well as globally.  It was at his initiative that the European Water Association (EWA), the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), the Japan Sewage Works Association (JSWA) and WEF signed an agreement for cooperation in 1998.  A truly international program was established among four organizations with the goal of exchanging technical and scientific information through the provision of joint conferences.  To date, five very successful joint conferences have been held in Japan, the U.S. and Germany. 

Dale has also served on numerous other boards and councils as part of WEF including the Stockholm International Water Institute, World Water Forums, and the Water Environment Research Foundation. 

 

Dale was recognized at WEFETC in September and at the Nebraska Joint Fall Conference in November for this honorary award.
