Alexandria, Va. — The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is now accepting applications for the 2018 Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards Program. Phase I and Phase II municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) permit holders are invited to submit a nomination by the Aug. 3, 2018 deadline.
The National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards program, developed and introduced in 2015 by WEF through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), was established to recognize high-performing regulated MS4s. Award winners meet and exceed regulatory requirements in innovative ways that are effective and cost-efficient.
Submissions will undergo an expert committee review and selection process. Each applicant will be designated a Bronze, Silver, or Gold community within the categories of both program management and innovation.
High-performers in program management and innovation will be recognized in October 2018. The Phase I and Phase II communities with the overall highest score will be honored as the formal winners of the 2018 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards at the Stormwater Congress Luncheon on Oct. 1 at WEFTEC 2018 in New Orleans, La.
