can Water’s Innovation and Environmental Stewardship Team
has been conducting cutting edge research, development,
and collaboration to lift the water and wastewater sector to
new heights, underscoring the value of water and the beneft
And also in the spotlight this year is the Metropolitan Sewer
District of Greater Cincinnati. This progressive utility is a leader
in clean, green, and smart strategies to reduce water pollution,
beautify neighborhoods, and drive economic development.
And fnally, the Orange County Water District and Sanitation District are being recognized for their Ground Water
Replenishment System. Their award-winning effort to reclaim
70 million gallons of water per day is expanding to 100 million gallons per day, all to reduce regional water insecurity and
recharge precious supplies.
“We’re very proud of these winners for their efforts to reduce
water waste, reuse water, and rethink watershed strategies,”
said Grumbles. “Collectively they embody the water quality and
water quantity challenges that communities throughout Amer-
ica face. But individually, each one of them demonstrated to
the judges that they were innovating and integrating different
aspects of water and economics and social needs, solving prob-
lems and working closely with the public to educate everyone
about the importance of water sustainability.”
Grumbles said that while there are many different award
programs in the water sector, the U.S. Water Alliance hopes
the U.S Water Prize will become a very well respected, high
profle awards program similar to the Stockholm Water Prize.
“Our goal is that for at least one evening of the year, impor-
tant offcials, water sector leaders, thought leaders and com-
munities in America can rally behind some real innovators and
sustainable water resource managers.”
Today, the motion picture industry’s celebration of achieve-
ment in flm is a global affair, dripping with glitz and glamor. But
it came from the humblest of beginnings — with just a few hun-
dred people in a hotel banquet hall. Perhaps the U.S. Water Prize
will follow a similar path. I can almost see the blue carpet now.
