Worth Noting/Calendar - March 2022


The City of Delray Beach (Florida) received a Sustainable Practices Recognition Award from the American Concrete Pavement Association in recognition of its use of pervious pavements in the Osceola Park Neighborhood Project. City leaders said that employing the latest technological innovations and proven best practices with that project will reduce stormwater runoff and flooding.

The Clayton County (Georgia) Water Authority earned the Georgia Association of Water Professionals Consumer Confidence Report Award for large surface water systems during the association’s fall conference in November. The Authority’s Communications & Community Relations Department also won a 2021 Public Relations Society of America - Georgia Chapter Phoenix Award in the Community Relations — Associations/Government/Nonprofit Organizations category for its I’m Invested! CCWA Rate Awareness Campaign. The campaign was a collaboration with Jacobs Engineering.

Birch Street and the Magnolia Underpass in Kennett Square — two major connectors of the 14-mile Kennett Greenway (Pennsylvania) — will be developed thanks to a $1.471 million grant received by the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund. The Birch Street Streetscape portion of the project will address stormwater issues, including the implementation of stormwater best management practices.

The RiverLink group received a $35,000 grant from the Pigeon River Fund of the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina. The funds will aid construction of the Southside Community Stormwater Project to collect and treat runoff at Erskine Apartments to solve flooding issues and improve surface water quality at Town Branch.

Project Clean Water, an initiative of San Diego County (California) dedicated to protecting water quality, received a Gold Award at the MarCom Awards, an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement in marketing and communications.
