Among other activities, the ESWP is the sponsor of the International Water Conference (IWC) annually since 1940;[2] the International Bridge Conference (IBC) annually since 1983;[3] and is a co-sponsor of the Pennsylvania Brownfields Conference (formerly named the Industrial Site Recycling Conference). ESWP regularly recognizes individuals and projects of distinction with awards and medals during their Annual Engineering Awards Banquet, thought to be the longest-running banquet of its type in America.[4]
