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 October 11, 2022.

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. Projects are not limited to highly visible structures.

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

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