And the award goes to...

The finalists of the second annual Water Industry Achievement Awards have been chosen and, judging by the success of last year's event, the awards dinner promises to be a night to remember

Following a successful debut in 2007, the Water Industry Achievement Awards (WIAAs) 2008 are set to be a highlight of Sustainabilitylive! and IWEX.

The winners will be named and presented with their awards at a black-tie dinner at the International Conference Centre, Birmingham, on 21 May 2008.

Created by two of the industry's leading publications - Faversham House Group's sister titles Water & Wastewater Treatment and WET News - the WIAAs recognise and reward excellence over the past 12 months in the UK water industry.

Water companies, authorities, the whole supply chain, and research establishments were invited to enter the awards and two new categories have been added for 2008.
