The 2018 winner was a 3-million-gallon water storage tank in The Dalles, Oregon.

“The commitment the water and wastewater industry demonstrates in protecting and preserving our planet’s most essential resource—water—is unrivaled," said Murray Heywood, North America Market Manager, Water & Wastewater, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. "Contractors, specifiers and asset owners are not just concerned about their operations or bottom line. They’re committed to ensuring future generations have access to clean, safe drinking water.

“We take great pride in honoring their contributions to enhancing public safety, protecting assets and extending infrastructure life with the Sherwin-Williams Impact Award.”

Applications can be submitted through the website June 17 through Aug. 16. The award will be presented at the Water Environment Federation’s Annual WEFTEC Conference and Exhibition, which occurs Sept. 23-25 in Chicago.

Last year's award went to HCI Industrial & Marine Coatings Inc. and engineering services provider CH2M Inc. for the restoration of a 3-million-gallon water storage tank located in the city of The Dalles, Oregon, during which the team had to account for smoke from a nearby wildfire, to make sure the pollutant would not absorb into the interior tank coating.

Runners-up also inclded applied coatings for the expansion of the South Bay International Wastewater Treatment Plant in San Diego, California, and an intermediate restoration of a 1-million-gallon elevated water storage tank in Houma, Louisiana. The honorable mention went to repair and restoration work completed for the Benton/Washington Regional Public Water Authority.
