Sherwin-Williams Now Accepting Impact Award Entry Submissions for Water and Wastewater Projects

Award Honors Outstanding Projects Featuring Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings

Water and Wastewater Impact Awards

CLEVELAND, OHIO (June 6, 2022) - Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine is now accepting entry submissions for its annual Impact Award, which recognizes outstanding water and wastewater projects completed in North America. The Impact Award honors application contractors, specifiers and owners for excellence in delivering long-term asset protection for the wide array of systems and structures that make up North America’s water and wastewater infrastructure.

2022 Sherwin-Williams Impact Award winning projects will be announced in March 2023.

Any new, restored and/or rehabilitated water-related structure that used Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine coatings from June 1, 2021 through July 31, 2022, is eligible for the award. Such projects include water treatment, water storage, water transmission, sewer collection and wastewater treatment structures, and are not limited to highly visible structures.

Clean water flowing from our taps doesn’t happen by accident. Neither does safely returning wastewater to treatment plants for processing. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to establish and maintain the necessary infrastructure for these critical utility needs. That’s why Sherwin-Williams gets excited about highlighting some outstanding projects each year that are helping to ensure fresh water access and environmentally safe wastewater removal. The Sherwin-Williams Impact Award demonstrates how these projects – and the contractors, specifiers and asset owners responsible for them – are helping to enhance public safety and extend infrastructure life.

An independent panel of respected water industry experts will determine winners. Judges will rate entries on:

  • The difficulty of the submitted project
  • Challenges overcome by the participants provided to the owner
  • How satisfied the parties were of the outcome
  • Overall uniqueness of the project
