Applications for the 2016 WODA Environmental Excellence Awards are due by 15 April 2016.
Three awards will be made in 2016
- One for a navigation dredging project,
- One for an environmental dredging project, and
- One for a sand and gravel dredging project.
Silver awards may be made for the runner-up in each category.
These Awards will be presented for projects and their team members that best meet the goals of WODA’s Environmental Commission:
Promote communication and understanding of environmental issues and stimulate new solutions associated with dredging and placement of dredged materials such that dredging projects, including navigation, environmental, and sand/gravel dredging, are accomplished in an efficient manner while meeting environmental goals.
