The Western Dredging Association yesterday announced that it is accepting applications for the 2017 WEDA Environmental Excellence Awards.

These awards will be presented on June 28, 2017, during the WEDA Dredging Summit and Exposition in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The objective of the awards is to recognize projects for their outstanding contribution to meeting the goals of WEDA, which include: “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 and environmental, are accomplished in an efficient manner while meeting environmental goals.

At the WEDA event, three Environmental Excellence Awards will be given, one for each of the following categories:

  • Dredging for Navigation (purpose is to create or maintain navigation channels);
  • Environmental Dredging (purpose is environmental enhancement, e.g., remediation or wetland creation); and
  • Mitigation or Adaptation to Climate Change (this category includes dredging or marine construction projects that exemplify and implement the WODA Statement on Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change).

WEDA also reported that all applications should be submitted in PDF format by April 17th 2017 to Craig Vogt, Chair of WEDA’s Environmental Commission at Craig@CraigVogt.com.
