Robert W. Hite Award

In 2008, Water For People announced the creation of a water and wastewater industry award named in honor of longtime volunteer Robert W. Hite, who was posthumously given the inaugural award.

This award recognizes a person (or couple) who has demonstrated active leadership to benefit others and is supportive of Water For People’s mission – someone who inspires a shared vision, is forward-thinking, and truly envisions a world where all people have access to safe water and sanitation facilities. The award is annually presented at WEFTEC.
