The competition began in 2002 and was developed to provide a forum at WEFTEC to showcase the capabilities of students studying environmental engineering. Through sponsorship of this event, student Design Teams compete for award money. In 2009, this event expanded to host two competitions:
(1) Wastewater Design - intended to include the traditional wastewater design projects, e.g. hydraulic capacity design, upgrades to existing systems, biosolids handling, etc.
(2) Environmental Design - intended to include the current contemporary engineering topics, e.g. sustainability, water reuse, wetland construction, etc..
