Open for Nominations

The 2019 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards Now Open for Nominations!

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is now accepting applications for the 2019 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards Program. Phase I and Phase II municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) permit holders are invited to submit a nomination.

About the Award

The National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards program, developed and introduced in 2015 by the Water Environment Federation through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), was established to recognize high-performing regulated MS4s. Award winners meet and exceed regulatory requirements in innovative ways that are effective and cost-efficient.

Submissions undergo an expert committee review and selection process. Each applicant will be designated a Bronze, Silver, or Gold community within the categories of both program management and innovation.

MS4 Award Benefits
High-performers in program management and innovation will be recognized in September 2019. The Phase I and Phase II communities with the overall highest score will be honored as the formal winners of the 2019 National Municipal Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Awards at the Stormwater Congress Luncheon on Sept. 23 at WEFTEC 2019 in Chicago, Il. The 2018 award winners are listed below.
