In central Iowa, we are very fortunate to have many organizations that make environmentally sustainable practices a priority. To recognize their efforts and identify the positive impact they make on our communities, the Environmental Impact Awards were established.
Partners Make the Environmental Impact Awards Possible
Des Moines Water Works joins Greater Des Moines Partnership, Center on Sustainable Communities (COSC) and Metro Waste Authority to recognize local organizations and leaders dedicated to sustainability in the Greater Des Moines area. If you know, or are associated with an organization that should be recognized for their efforts, please consider submitting an award application for the Environmental Impact Awards.
Applications Available Online
You can nominate an organization in these areas:
- Business (large and small)
- Civic organization (governmental and non-governmental)
- Built environment (residential and commercial construction)
Best water management practices will receive a special honor.
Applications for the Environmental Impact Awards will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11.
