Australia’s top water infrastructure projects will compete for the 2020 Infrastructure Project Innovation Award at the Australian Water Association’s National Water Awards next month.

Usually presented at a gala dinner during the AWA’s Ozwater conference, this year the award winners will be revealed during two virtual happy hours as part of Ozwater’20 Online

SMEC CEO James Phillis congratulated all of the finalists and said he looked forward to the winner being announced.
