Water Protection and
Waste Management Awards
At its 2018 conference, NTWWA introduced two new awards to recognize the efforts of NWT and NU communities to protect the environment and water bodies around their communities.
Waste Management Awards are given to communities which are in their earlier years of monitoring their waste management systems, which includes developing standards and guidelines, improving municipal water licence compliance, monitoring activities and results and reporting these to the appropriate land and water boards annually.
The 2018 recipients of Waste Management Awards were:
Water Protection Awards reflect how well communities have done in the past year with their waste management and recognize the number of years monitoring activities listed in their water licences were submitted to their land and water boards. There is one Water Protection Award for each territory.
The 2018 recipients of Water Protection Awards were:
Hamlet of Baker Lake (NU)
Hamlet of Fort Providence (NWT)
Congratulations to all 2018 recipients!
