The 2021 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards Now Open for Nominations!
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is now accepting applications for the 2021 National 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.
About the Award
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 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 2021. The Phase I and Phase II communities with the overall highest score will be honored as the formal winners of the 2021 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards at WEFTEC 2021. The 2020 award winners are listed below.
Eligibility and How to Apply
Phase I and Phase II MS4 permit holders in good standing are invited to submit an award nomination. The application consists of general information questions and seven more detailed questions about your MS4 program divided into program management and innovation categories.
A final copy of your nomination must be received by Monday, May 10, 2021.
