The Stormwater NSW Awards for Excellence encourage and celebrate excellence in the innovation, development, completion and management of stormwater projects and the people involved.

The next Stormwater NSW Awards for Excellence will be held in November 2021, with applications opening in June 2021.  Click here for more information.

Under the Awards for Excellence protocol adopted nationally by Stormwater Australia, only the recipients of the State Awards for Excellence will be eligible for the National Excellence Awards. Therefore, entry of a project into a State Excellence Awards is a minimum prerequisite for entry into the National Awards.

Allowance may be made for recipients of a State Excellence Award to refine their application for National entry based on the judges’ comments and feedback on the State level application. For example, it may be recommended that a criteria response is amended to more clearly demonstrate or emphasise aspects of the project. This will allow the State Association to further support excellence in the local stormwater industry. The National Awards will be held every two years, with the preceding two years of State award winners eligible for the National Awards.

The Stormwater NSW Awards for Excellence categories are:

  • Excellence in Strategic or Master Planning
  • Excellence in Infrastructure
  • Excellence in Asset Management
  • Excellence in Research and Innovation
  • Excellence in Policy or Education
  • Excellence in Integrated Stormwater Design
  • Young Stormwater Professional of the Year
