TAS Awards

In 2012 the Branch introduced an awards program in line with the Australian Water Association National Water Awards. The Tasmanian Water Environment Merit Award (TWEMA) is awarded by the Tasmanian branch of the Australian Water Association for a project, initiative, product or service which has achieved outstanding management or development of water resources on a sustainable basis in Tasmania in the past three to four years. Find out more below.

 

The Tasmanian branch of the AWA is now offering an expanded suite of individual and organisational awards in order to recognise the achievements of our individual and corporate members. State winners are provided the opportunity to enter into the National Water Awards which are presented at Ozwater each year.

Award Nominations now open for 2021
The 2021 Winners will be announced at the TAS Galah Dinner in November 2021. Nominations close 1 October 2021.
