During September and October, Water Environment & Technology (WE&T) magazine readers were asked to show innovative ways they manage, educate about, or deal with damage caused by stormwater.

The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) invited water sector professionals to submit photos for the contest, the second in a series following this summer’s Operator-in-Action photo contest. Stormwater Snapshot entries illustrated how skilled facility operators, engineers, and other field workers think outside-the-box to provide effective stormwater control.

Winners, chosen by online vote, were

  • Matt Huffman, Beckley (W.Va.) Sanitary Board, in first place;
  • Wendi Knutsen, City of Colorado Springs (Colo.) Public Works Department, in second place; and
  • Katie Norris, City of Dayton (Ohio) Department of Water, in third place.

WE&T holds photo contests with different themes every 3 months. Winners receive exclusive WE&T-themed prizes and their photos are featured in the “From the Field” section of the magazine.
