Recognized for its innovative and sustaining qualities, the WaterHub at Emory University is now a five time award winner! The project recently earned two new awards: the Superior Environmental Performance Award presented by the Georgia Safety, Health and Environmental Conference and the Georgia Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), and the Engineering Excellence Grand Award in the Water Resources category presented by the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina.
Recycling over 30 million gallons of water since May, the WaterHub won the Superior Environmental Performance Award for its exemplary environmental, health, and safety improvements in the Georgia region. The Georgia Safety, Health and Environmental Conference and the Georgia Chapter of the ASSE are dedicated to supplying industry professionals with, “a quality, comprehensive and convenient way to develop and improve their technical, managerial, regulatory and administrative skills necessary for maintaining and sustaining a safe, healthy, and environmentally sound workplace.”  Within this prestigious award, the WaterHub shined not only for its benefits to Emory University, but also to the broader Atlanta community by reducing Emory’s draw from Atlanta’s watershed by up to 146 million gallons of water annually.
As the top award in the Water Resources category, the Engineering Excellence Grand Award was presented by the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina, an organization, “engaged in a wide range of engineering projects that propel the economy and enhance and safeguard our state’s quality of life.” The WaterHub at Emory University was chosen for its engineering excellence based on unique and innovative applications, future value, perception by the public, complexity, and fulfillment of Emory University’s needs.
