Nominations wanted for those making a difference

The Aquarion Water Company is seeking adults, students, small and large businesses, and non-profits whose volunteer efforts have protected or improved Connecticut’s natural resources.

For the fourth year, the company will name winners of its Aquarion Environmental Champion Awards in five categories: Adult, youth, small business, large business and non-profit organization.

The deadline for nominations is May 7.  Self-nominations and renominations are welcome.

“Every day, volunteers make outstanding contributions to Connecticut’s environmental health,” said Charles V. Firlotte, president and CEO of Aquarion. “The initiative, energy and resourcefulness of these volunteers benefits people throughout Connecticut and beyond, in terms of water quality, wildlife habitat, local food sources, outdoor recreation and many other goals.”

Aquarion will honor winners on June 7.
