APWA: New Certified SW Managers
KANSAS CITY, MO. – The American Public Works Association (APWA) announced today that eight public works professionals from across the nation have recently earned the certifications as Stormwater Managers (CSM). The APWA CSM certification is intended for water experts in both the public and private sectors who coordinate and implement stormwater management programs for city, county, state, provincial, and federal agencies. These professionals assist in administering drainage, flood control, and water quality programs. Since its inception, the APWA CSM program has certified 89 Stormwater Managers in North America.
“For water experts in public works, the APWA Stormwater Manager certification is a hallmark of excellence for U.S. and Canadian water professionals,” said APWA Executive Director Peter B. King. “The purpose of the Stormwater Manager Certification is to promote excellence and commitment to public service by advancing the knowledge and practice of stormwater management to benefit the community, public agencies and the profession. Being connected with and certified by APWA ensures competent, experienced, and well-trained employees. The pay-off is to the public works profession and, ultimately, to our communities by providing recognized hiring and promotion standards that will lead to an improved workforce and delivery of services,” King said.
