By a unanimous decision, the Excellence in GSI Awards Committee named Howard Neukrug, the former commissioner of Philadelphia Water (PWD), the winner of the 2016 Award for Leadership in GSI.
Neukrug has been a visionary in sustainable water management, spearheading the green stormwater infrastructure movement within Philadelphia, and leading the City to become the national model for green stormwater management that it is today.
Neukrug is incredibly deserving of this award given his long-time dedication to making stormwater infrastructure into a “triple bottom line” investment. We’re honored to be able to give him this award at the 5 year anniversary of Green City, Clean Waters. Thanks to the work started under his leadership, our communities are improved, our local green economy is bolstered, and our urban environment is more sustainable.
