WEF Presents Stormwater Video Competition Awards at WEFTEC 2013

Winners of the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) 2013 Stormwater Video Competition highlight a stormwater renovation project, an overall strategy to reduce stormwater, online resources educating about stormwater, a filtration process to treat runoff, and a best management practice device that removes zinc from runoff. WEF presented the StormTV Project awards and screened winning videos in the Stormwater Pavilion during WEFTEC® 2013.

WEF received 113 video submissions in four categories. Twenty judges from WEF’s stormwater and watershed committees reviewed the submissions and selected winners based on innovation, communication of the message, visual appeal and quality, and content matter and relevance.

“These videos offer a lot of great ideas, tools, and techniques that have worked for others in the stormwater and water quality fields — bite-size stormwater education easy to view over lunch,” said Stormwater Committee Chair Mike Beezhold.

The 2013 winners are

  • LandStudies Inc. (Lititz, Pa.) for its “Landis Home Restoration” video in the for-profit projects category;

  • Portland (Ore.) Bureau of Environmental Services for its “Working for Clean Rivers: Portland’s CSO Program 1991–2001” video in the nonprofit and government programs category;

  • Chesapeake Bay Program (Annapolis, Md.) for its “Chesapeake Unscripted: What Happens to Stormwater Runoff After It Rains?” video in the public education and informational pieces category;

  • WesTech Engineering Inc. (Salt Lake City) for its “WWETCO Flexfilter: The Stormwater Solution” video in the stormwater equipment category; and
