Entering its 21rst year of honoring businesses for their commitment to environmental awareness, the City of Fort Worth has broadened its Environmental Excellence Awards to also honor innovation in waste reduction, recycling and water efficiency.

This year, the awards program sees the addition of the Innovation Award and the Recognition Award. Each category contains subcategories and businesses can apply for more than one award, the city said in a news release.

The application to the 2019 Environmental Excellence Awards is available online at www.FortWorthTexas.gov/water/environmental-awards. The deadline to apply is July 31.

The awards will be presented during a luncheon ceremony Wednesday, Nov.6 at River Ranch Stockyards, 500 NE 23rd St.

The awards program began in 1999 as the Pretreatment Awards, honoring companies in full compliance with wastewater regulations. Those awards will continue and are based on the number of consecutive years of compliance. They include the Star, Associate, Partnership and Stewardship levels. In 2018, 78 businesses were recognized for their pretreatment compliance.

In 2018, an Industry of the Year Award was added to the program and the winner announced at the ceremony. A company will receive the top award again this year.

The Innovation Awards will be presented in the areas of Water Use and Process Improvement, Water Conservation, Stormwater, Air Quality, Land Redevelopment, Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling.

Recognition Awards include Fort Worth Friendly Landscapes, recognizing businesses applying water conservation principles to their landscape, and the SmartWater Award, which has been presented since 2010 to industrial, commercial and institutional customers implementing water efficiency strategies following a SmartWater Audit.

The City’s Water and Code Compliance departments are partnering to present the awards.
