Each year, the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management Program presents the Stormwater Steward Award to an organization, business, individual, or community group that has gone above and beyond to reduce the impact of stormwater runoff on our waters through a specific project, practice, or event. A list of past stormwater steward winners can be found here.
If you are interested in nominating someone for the award, or if you would like to nominate your own project, please submit a complete application to the Stormwater Management Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to the 2016 Stormwater Steward Individual Award Winners: Gwyneth Moody and Daniel Peiken
The Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management Program recognizes Gwyneth Moody and Daniel Peiken for going above and beyond in addressing stormwater management. Their beautiful residential rain garden and swale reduces the amount of stormwater runoff generated by their home and neighboring properties. The swale and rain garden help to educate and inspire Athens-Clarke County residents to be mindful of their own stormwater footprint, and to be better stewards of the environment.
Congratulations to the 2016 Stormwater Steward Business Award Winners: Bojangles' and Kimley-Horn
The Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Management Program recognizes Bojangles’ and Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. for going above and beyond in addressing commercial stormwater management. Bojangles’ treatment train and bioretention area, designed by Kimley-Horn, reduces the amount of stormwater runoff generated by their business and neighboring properties. This infrastructure captures rainwater before it becomes runoff and lets it slowly absorb into the ground.
