SWS Announces 2022 Top Projects Winners

Nov. 18, 2022

Storm Water Solutions announced the 10 winners of its annual Top Projects Awards Nov. 18, 2022.  

The SWS Top Projects Awards program highlights the best stormwater and erosion control projects of the year that sought creative solutions. Whether the projects focused on erosion control, watershed management, or green infrastructure, this year's projects required innovation and collaboration between numerous project stakeholders.   

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; and innovative processes and/or equipment. Entries qualified so long as it was in the design or construction phase in the last 18 months. Nominations are open throughout the year, and engineers, consultants and contractors are encouraged to submit their best projects for the program. 

Each project will be featured in the November/December print issue of Storm Water Solutions and on the SWS website, estormwater.com. Additionally, stakeholders from each project will be featured in the SWS video series, Dropping By, to share more about their work. These videos will start airing on Monday, November 21.
