From June to August 2012, Water & Wastes Digest invited project managers to submit entries showcasing industry-specific projects in design or construction during the past 18 months. The editorial staff selected the winners based on the obstacles that were faced and overcome by all parties involved with the project, as well as final goals achieved and success met. While different in size and scope, the main objective of these projects remains the same: to meet population and regulatory demands, address aging infrastructure needs, and implement cost-efficient technologies and best practices.
