The Victorian Water Awards promote outstanding work by individuals and organisations in the water industry and recognise innovation in the technology, business and delivery of water projects across six categories.
Along with the prestige of being recognised as ‘the best in Victoria’, winners are automatically entered into the National Awards presented at Ozwater each year.
The Victorian Branch is committed to acknowledging and promoting the outstanding work achieved by individuals and organisations in the Victorian water sector to inspire future achievements.
