Entry submissions are now open for the annual Sherwin-Williams Impact Award, which honors outstanding water and wastewater projects completed in North America. Presented by the Protective & Marine Coatings division of Sherwin-Williams, the award recognizes application contractors, specifiers and owners for their dedication to protecting water and wastewater infrastructure assets.

The 2021 Sherwin-Williams Impact Award-winning projects will be presented virtually in November. Generating broad industry exposure for the winning teams, the announcement will appear on LinkedIn and in various Sherwin-Williams communications, including the company’s website, an e-newsletter and an industry press release.

Any new, restored and/or rehabilitated water-related structure that used Sherwin-Williams protective and marine coatings from Jan. 1, 2020, through May 31, 2021, is eligible for the award. Such projects include water treatment, water storage, water transmission, sewer collection and wastewater treatment structures, and are not limited to highly visible structures.

“Clean water flowing from our taps doesn’t happen by accident. Neither does safely returning wastewater to treatment plants for processing. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to establish and maintain the necessary infrastructure for these critical utility needs,” says Murray Heywood, North America market manager of water and wastewater for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine. “That’s why we get excited about highlighting outstanding projects each year that are helping to ensure freshwater access and environmentally safe wastewater removal. The Sherwin-Williams Impact Award demonstrates how these projects — and the contractors, specifiers and asset owners responsible for them — contribute to enhancing public safety and extending infrastructure life.”

Applications for the award will be accepted June 24 through Sept. 24. The application form and entry details can be found on the Sherwin-Williams website.

An independent panel of respected water industry experts will determine winners. Judges will rate entries on the difficulty of the submitted project; challenges overcome by the participants; solutions provided to the owner; how satisfied the parties were with the outcome; and the overall uniqueness of the project.
