Water & Wastes Digest announced the 10 winners of its annual Top Projects Awards, which represent some of the most important, challenging and valuable work to their respective communities on Nov. 18, 2022.
The WWD Top Projects Awards program highlights the best water and wastewater projects of the year. Entries qualified so long as it was in the design or construction phase between Jan. 1, 2021 and July 15, 2022. Nominations are open throughout the year, and utilities, engineers, consultants and contractors are encouraged to submit their best projects for the program.
This year’s winners highlight valuable commitments to communities and public health, intricate and complex long-term projects requiring diligent coordination of stakeholders, and even some industrial facilities that made commitments to be better neighbors.
Projects are scored by the Endeavor Water Group editors on the merits of complexity of work; impact to community; size and scale; challenges overcome during design, construction and commissioning; stakeholder coordination and involvement; collaboration during construction; coordination among utilities for completed work; and innovative processes and/or equipment.
Each project will be featured in an article on the Water & Wastes Digest website throughout the month of December, and most will also be accompanied with video interviews in which the owners and project managers will share deeper insights into their projects.
