The One Water Awards were developed to honor initiatives that exemplify the principles of the One Water approach: sustainable, integrated, and inclusive water resource management practices. One Water is the belief that all water – stormwater, drinking water, wastewater – has value that can be unlocked to solve the state’s water challenges. 

Take a look at the One Water Awards winners.

The awards are sponsored by a partnership of statewide water-focused organizations:

Together these five organizations will honor projects and programs that address water issues holistically and with other community priorities, reflect collaboration, innovation, and public education, and advance long-term sustainability by meeting multiple needs and generating multiple benefits.

Awards are given in four categories:

  • Public: Open to local, regional and state-level public entities in New Jersey including municipalities, counties, state agencies and utilities.
  • Private: Open to private-sector businesses and institutions, including investor-owned water utilities, developers, manufacturers, and more.
  • Nonprofit: Open to nonprofit organizations of all sizes and missions.
  • Academic: Open to academic institutions of all sizes.
