ACT Water Awards 

The Australian Water Association ACT Branch Awards are an exciting part of the ACT Branch’s annual program and promote the outstanding work achieved by individuals and organisations in the water sector. There are also designed to promote the water and environmental sciences as a career choice through the student category awards.

The awards are an opportunity for individuals and organisations to be recognised for innovation and excellence in the technology, business and delivery of water industry projects.

The ACT winners are automatically entered in the Australian Water Association’s National Australian Water Awards which are presented at Ozwater each year. 

Help us to recognise the contributions to the water industry by nominating yourself, your organisation or someone else.
