The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced the winners of the 24th annual Texas Environmental Excellence Awards. These prestigious awards bring attention to the most innovative and effective projects that protect the state’s natural resources.
“For years I have been honored to recognize the innovative measures that Texans of all ages, from across the state, take to improve our environment,” said TCEQ Chairman Bryan W. Shaw, Ph.D., P.E. “and this year is certainly no different.”
“We are inspired by these winners’ commitment to retaining the beauty and natural resources of Texas, from the coastal bend to the upper reaches of the Panhandle,” said Commissioner Toby Baker.
“The individuals, businesses, and organizations represented this year truly serve as a model to others.” said Commissioner Jon Niermann. This year’s winners will be recognized at a banquet held in their honor on May 4, 2016, as part of the TCEQ’s Environmental Trade Fair and Conference at the Austin Convention Center, May 3-4.
