The New England Stormwater Collaborative was formed by the New England Water Works Association, New England Water Environment Association and New England Chapter of the American Public Works Association with the objectives of EDUCATION, UNDERSTANDING, and ACTION. The collaborative works to engage the stormwater community, provide a forum for information and education exchange, and advocate sound stormwater management practices. 

Each year the New England Stormwater Collaborative awards three New England Stormy Awards for the best ideas in the world of stormwater management. Please check back in the fall of 2018 for details on nominations for 2018. 2017 awards were presented at the New England Water Works Association's Annual Spring Conference in April.  

The New England Stormwater Collaborative continues its efforts to identify the best stormwater work in New England. The Stormy Award program's goals are to identify simple, imaginative, unique, and inventive stormwater ideas in three categories: 
  • Stormwater Management/Green Infrastructure
  • Political Support/Funding/Outreach
  • Program Efficiency/Technology
