This past summer, Storm Water Solutions invited project managers to submit nominations for industry-specific projects in design or construction that have taken place over the past 18 months. The SWS editorial staff then selected the winners based on the obstacles that were faced and overcome, and final goals achieved. Although they vary in size and scope, all of these winning projects shared main objectives: meet population and regulatory demands, address aging infrastructure needs, and implement cost-efficient technologies and best practices.
