The New England Stormwater Collaborative is looking for ways local communities are enhancing their ability to deliver stormwater management services.

The collaborative — a joint committee of the New England Water Environment Association, New England Water Works Association (NEWWA), and the New England Chapter of the American Public Works Association — is planning to recognize simple, imaginative, and inventive ways that New England communities are increasing staff capacity, funding, or political support for stormwater management programs.

Through the Stormy Awards program, just launched at the end of 2014, the collaborative will award the top three ideas with free admission to and recognition at the April 2015 NEWWA Spring Conference in Worchester, Mass.

If you represent a New England community, click here for more information and to submit a winning idea before December 31st.
