Hard work and innovation fuel the achievements and growth of the storm water industry. The SWS editorial staff recognizes and appreciates the groundbreaking initiatives to which you and your peers contribute, and we are proud to highlight this year’s most impressive endeavors in our First Annual Top Storm Water Projects program.

SWS called for and accepted 2008 Top Storm Water Projects nominations from July through September, and the response was strong in terms of both the quantity and quality of submissions. To be considered, projects had to have been in a design or construction phase within the past 18 months.

From site planning and equipment production to construction work and project maintenance, each phase and function of a storm water undertaking is an important one. Of the utmost importance to a project’s success, though, is all partners working collectively toward carefully crafted long-term goals.

Accordingly, the SWS editorial staff selected the 2008 program’s winners based not on their projects’ size or cost, but rather the challenges faced and the ingenuity and success of solutions implemented.

Many thanks to those storm water professionals who shared nominations, and congratulations to the designers, contractors, owners and other project participants honored in this special section.
