The ICE has launched a new award for 2015, focusing on sustainability in the water sector.
The Chris Binnie Award for Sustainable Water Management recognises work within the sector which has benefited society. The work can relate to an engineering project, a programme of works, a policy or a piece of research.
The award is open to individuals or organisations, including water companies, consultants, contractors, research bodies, regulators, governments and community groups.
Projects and initiatives from around the world can be entered, although they must be completed by May 2015.
The award has been commissioned by the ICE’s water expert panel and is sponsored by long-serving panel member and ICE Fellow, Chris Binnie.
Binnie has had a long careers as a water consultant. He says sustainability in water “is vital for the long-term well-being of our society, especially with increasing world population and changing climate”.
“We can live without most things, but water to drink, grow our food and support our industry is vital but diminishing,” he added.
The winning entry will be selected by the ICE’s water expert panel and will receive a Dartington crystal water jug at the ICE awards ceremony on Wednesday 7 October. The winner will also feature as a casestudy on the ICE website.
- Closing date for entries is 11 May. For more information including how to enter click here.
