Coatings supplier Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings announced last week that submissions are now open for its annual Sherwin-Williams Impact Award, honoring excellence on North American water and wastewater projects.

Projects eligible for nomination including new, restored and/or rehabilitated water-related structures using Sherwin-Williams coatings or linings. Besides tanks and towers, eligible structures include water treatment and storage facilities, transmission structures, sewer collection and wastewater treatment facilities.

One of last year's runners-up was a water tower in Findlay, Ohio.

In order to be eligible for this year's award, a project must have been carried out during the 2017 calendar year. The company will continue to accept submissions via its Waterblog through July 31.

“Each year the Sherwin-Williams Impact Award honors project teams for their efforts to deliver lon-term asset protection for the wide array of systems and structures that make up North America’s water and wastewater infrastructure,” said 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.”

According to the company, an independent panel of judges will adjudicate entries based on difficulty of the project, challenges overcome, solutions provided to the owner, how satisfied the parties were with the outcome, and the overall uniqueness of the project. 

Last year's honorees included the winner, a chlorine contact chamber rehabilitation donated by Carolina Management Team to the municipality of St. Pauls, North Carolina, as part of the company's "CMT Gives Back" program. Runners-up included a Findlay, Ohio, water tower and a 4.5-million-gallon storage tank in Mukilteo, Washington.
