Plaster Creek Stewards received the Learning Network Signature Award from the Urban Waters Learning Network, Groundwork USA, River Network and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The award honors individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the network of urban waters practitioners and to the field of urban waters protection and restoration. Plaster Creek Stewards is an initiative of Calvin University dedicated to returning health and beauty to one of the most contaminated urban waterways in west Michigan. A major goal of the work is to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that enters Plaster Creek.

Santa Clarita Valley residents Wayne Crawford, president of Santa Clarita Concrete, and Jason Gibbs, a mechanical engineer with GP Strategies, were named as advisers to the Safe, Clean Water Program Watershed Area Steering Committee for Los Angeles County.
