Awarded on an annual basis, the US Water Prize celebrates outstanding achievement in the advancement of sustainable, integrated, and inclusive solutions to our nation's water challenges. It is the preeminent national recognition program for exemplary efforts to secure a sustainable water future for all.
The US Water Prize for Outstanding Public Official honors an individual who has championed water policy in their public agenda, inspiring leadership and action to overcome water sector challenges. Individuals eligible to be nominated can be elected or appointed, including mayors, city managers, city council members, governors, members of legislatures, members of Congress, and employees of federal agencies. Please note that while utility employees are invaluable assets, this award is focused on highlighting public officials who have championed One Water solutions while not working for a water agency. We encourage utility leaders to apply via the organizational award category.
Winners of US Water Prize 2019 will be announced and recognized during the annual awards ceremony on September 18 at One Water Summit 2019 in Austin, Texas. Nominations are due April 15 and winners will be chosen by an independent review panel of water experts. Alliance members and non-members are both eligible to apply.
