People Behind the Water photo contest offers $1,000 prize

Our members work every day to protect public health and the environment—from source to tap to drain and back. Yet for many, these efforts may go unseen.


That's why we've launched the People Behind the Water photo contest, to shine a spotlight on our members and the important work they do. The contest is a great opportunity to highlight your team, project or facility on the cover and in the pages of Watermark magazine. For those in particularly unique areas of the sector, like cross connection control, wastewater management, small systems, or research projects, it’s a way to show others across BC and the Yukon just what you do.
