The City of Pensacola will be presented the FSA Project Excellence Award for 2018 for the “Government Street Regional Stormwater Pond” project at FSA’s annual meeting and conference in June.
The Excellence Awards are presented annually by FSA to public sector member organizations throughout the state who have demonstrated a high level of distinction and innovation in stormwater programs and/or projects. More specifically, award nominations are made in one of two categories:
- Program Excellence - the sustained demonstration of excellence in a stormwater department or division, as evidenced by ongoing and frequent development and implementation of innovative projects, a stable staff or adequate funding, etc.
- Project Excellence - Successful implementation or outstanding innovations by a public entity in one or more areas of stormwater management projects, including stormwater utilities, permit compliance, intergovernmental coordination, water quality improvement, public education, illicit discharge detection, etc.
The purpose of the awards is to recognize outstanding and highly intuitive Stormwater Programs and Projects in the profession of stormwater management, and the benefits they provide to the environment and local citizenry. Projects are submitted and evaluated from county and city municipalities throughout the state for consideration of these prestigious awards annually.
