NSW Awards

The Australian Water Association NSW Branch Awards promote the outstanding work by individuals and organisations in the water industry and recognise innovation and excellence in the technology, business and delivery of water projects.

Along with the prestige of being recognised as ‘the best in New South Wales’ winners of a number of the NSW Water Awards will automatically be entered into the equivalent Australian Water Awards category, which are presented at Ozwater each year. 

Help us to recognise the contributions to the water industry by nominating yourself, your organisation or someone else.
