The entry submission process is now open for the annual Sherwin-Williams Impact Award, which recognizes excellence on North American water and wastewater projects. Each year, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings honors application contractors, specifiers and owners for outstanding work within the industry.

Eligible projects for the Sherwin-Williams Impact Award include any new, restored and/or rehabilitated water-related structure that was completed using coating and lining materials from Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31.

Projects may cover any aspect of the water and wastewater market — including water treatment, water storage, water transmission, sewer collection and wastewater treatment — not just highly visible structures.

“Each year the Sherwin-Williams Impact Award honors project teams for their efforts to deliver long-term asset protection for the wide array of systems and structures that make up North America’s water and wastewater infrastructure,” says Kevin Morris, water and wastewater market director for Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings. “No obstacle is too great for these teams to overcome to enhance public safety, protect assets and extend infrastructure life using high-performance protective coatings. We look forward to learning what challenges applicants faced and how they addressed them to deliver project excellence and positively impact the local community.”

Applications for the award will be accepted June 1 through July 31 online here.

An independent panel of water industry experts will review all entries to determine the winners, including an overall winner, a runner-up and an honorable mention. The judges’ work encompasses corrosion and materials engineering, consulting, specification, testing and inspection services.

Award entries will be rated on the difficulty of the submitted project, challenges overcome by the participants, solutions provided to the owner, how satisfied the parties were of the outcome and the overall uniqueness of the project.
