GMWEA believes our water quality workers deserve recognition for their knowledge, skills, and dedication -- too often under-appreciated by the public they serve. Our annual awards honor individuals, facilities, and companies nominated by their peers for their exceptional achievements.
The award ceremony takes place in person during GMWEA's annual Spring Meeting, being held on May 25 at the Killington Grand Resort.
See below for a list of past winners, and a link to a complete list of past winners. Note: Winners are recognized for their prior year's service.
