Last call for entries to Water Industry Achievement Awards 2012

A last call for entries has been made for the Water Industry Achievement Awards (WIAA) 2012, with businesses and organisations in the water industry urged to apply before the deadline next week (December 19).

The awards, sponsored by water regulator Ofwat and organised by edieWater’s sister journals WET News and Water & Wastewater Treatment (WWT), recognise innovation and best practice in the water industry which delivers real benefits to consumers.

Now in its sixth year, the ceremony and gala dinner will take place on March 29 2012 at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham.

The awards feature 13 categories, rewarding the best initiatives of the year in the following areas: partnership, FOG reduction, customer satisfaction, carbon reduction, community project, health and safety, SUDS and flood management, most innovative use of new technology, most innovative use of existing technology, renewable energy, and leakage.

An award will also be given to the individual who has made an “outstanding and important contribution” to the industry by helping to raise standards, improve the industry’s image, or open up a new area of the market.

WET News and WWT publisher Angela Himus said: “We know that there’s a tremendous amount of innovation and research going on, which is so important if the water industry is to meet the challenges of the future. The awards are the ideal way to celebrate and reward that work.”

The deadline for entries is December 19 2011 and entrants can apply here.
