The Hilton Head PSD Water Champion Award

The Hilton Head PSD Water Champion Award

The Hilton Head PSD Water Champion Award is presented to individuals, businesses, or organizations that have made a positive impact on the water environment in the Hilton Head PSD service area. Human health and environmental protection related to water resources, water efficiency, watershed protection, and water-related education and outreach are all examples of the topic areas that Water Champions may have an impact upon.

Why nominate a Water Champion?

The PSD Water Champion Award is a great way to recognize contributions that affect our most precious natural resource – water. Learning about a recipient’s efforts will help inspire others to think about what they can do to enhance, preserve and protect the water environment. In this regard, the Water Champion Award is a knowledge-sharing effort that can benefit our entire community.
