BRIDGEPORT, CT - As the May 1st deadline for its second annual Environmental Champion Awards approaches, Aquarion Water Company (AWC) is reminding schools, businesses, environmental organizations and the general public that nominations are still being accepted for outstanding voluntary achievements to protect and restore Connecticut’s natural environment.

The Aquarion Environmental Champion Awards will select a winner in four categories: Student, Adult, Non-Profit Organization and Business. Nominations can be made for volunteer projects that have significantly contributed to the improvement of environmental quality through the protection, conservation, restoration or stewardship of Connecticut’s water, air, soils, and plant and wildlife habitats. Awards will be given to projects that demonstrate a high level of achievement and create sustainable or reproducible results

“There are a multitude of individuals and organizations from across the state doing great work to help Connecticut’s environment,” noted Charles V. Firlotte, CEO of Aquarion Water Company. “We have received some excellent nominations so far and we hope even more people will nominate themselves or a colleague for their environmental efforts before the May 1st deadline.”

Aquarion will honor winners on June 2nd at a major event to be held at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport. U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal will participate in presenting the awards, as will Daniel Esty, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and John DeAugustine, Group Publisher for Hearst Media Services of Connecticut. Awards will include a $1000 savings bond for the student winner and $2500 contributions to an environmental non-profit organization selected by the winners in the adult, non-profit organization and business categories.

Self-nominations are welcome. More information on the awards and a nomination form are available at or
