The National Hydropower Association is now accepting nominations for its annual Outstanding Stewards of America's Waters Awards program.
The awards, which honor hydropower generators from around the country whose initiatives deserve special recognition, will be presented in three categories, including:
- Operational Excellence: This category focuses on leading projects that add value to hydropower generation and demonstrate technical contributions.
- Public Education: This category highlights programs that effectively communicate and promote the benefits of hydropower to an outside audience.
- Recreational, Environmental & Historical Enhancement: This category covers projects that provide enhanced recreational opportunities for the general public, conserve or enhance natural resources, and/or conserve historical aspects of hydroelectric production.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony during the 2013 NHA Annual Conference in Washington, DC.
Owners of projects wishing to be considered for an OSAW Award should submit a Letter of Intent to Matthew Nocella by September 14, 2012, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
