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 previous One Water Awards winners.

The awards are sponsored by a new 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 three 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/ academic: Open to nonprofit organizations and academic institutions.

Review the Eligibility and Guidelines for 2018.
Applications close September 30.
