Jessica Bastin has been selected to serve as president of the Indiana Water Environment Association (IWEA) for a one-year term. She is one of the youngest presidents ever elected. As president, Jessica plans to initiate a new outreach program geared toward public officials and kick off a public awareness campaign to inform the public about the value of preserving and protecting our water environment.
Jessica has been actively involved in IWEA for almost 10 years and served as the chair of the Public Communications and Outreach Committee for seven years. In 2008, she was awarded the IWEA Tumblebug Award for service to the organization, and in 2012 she accepted the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Public Education Award for Member Associations on behalf of the IWEA. “Water is our most valuable resource, and wastewater professionals play a critical role in protecting our water environment.” Jessica says. “IWEA educates over 1,300 wastewater professionals throughout Indiana, and I am honored to have been selected to lead this organization.”
