Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Illinois, was awarded the 2023 Public Officials Award by the Water Environment Federation (WEF) recently.

Announced April 12, 2024, the Award said it was for Krishnamoorthi’s “documented, significant contribution in the areas of clean water legislation, public policy, government service, or another area of public prominence that resulted in improvements to the water environment.”

Rep. Krishnamoorthi has contributed to advocating for water safety, including supporting the Great Lakes Restoration Act, the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) Action Act, and local water projects from the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, his office noted in a press release.

“I want to thank the Water Environment Federation for the honor of the 2023 Public Officials Award and for their continued efforts to improve water quality across the country and the world,” Congressman Krishnamoorthi said in a statement. “Clean water is essential to a strong and functioning society, and since 1928, WEF has prioritized training its professionals in the field to make healthy and safe water a reality for everyone. I look forward to continuing to work with WEF and my colleagues in Congress to make critical investments in the water infrastructure on which we all depend.”
