During September and October, Water Environment & Technology (WE&T) magazine readers were asked to show innovative ways they manage, educate about, or deal with damage caused by stormwater. Water sector professionals were invited to enter the Stormwater Snapshots photo contest.

The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) hosted this photo contest, the second in a series following this summer’s Operator-in-Action photo contest.

Stormwater Snapshot entries illustrated how skilled facility operators, engineers, and other field workers think outside-the-box to provide effective stormwater control.

Winners, chosen by online vote, were

  • Matt Huffman, Beckley (W.Va.) Sanitary Board, in first place;
  • Wendi Knutsen, City of Colorado Springs (Colo.) Public Works Department, in second place; and
  • Katie Norris, City of Dayton (Ohio) Department of Water, in third place.

WE&T holds photo contests with different themes every 3 months. Winners receive exclusive WE&T-themed prizes and their photos are featured in the “From the Field” section of the magazine. 

Stay up-to-date with current contests by following WEF’s Facebook page. The next photo contest will be open for entries Dec. 1.

Below is a gallery of all the Stormwater Snapshot entries.
