Each year the New England Stormwater Collaborative awards three New England Stormy Awards for the best ideas in the world of stormwater management. The Stormy Awards recognize imaginative, unique, and inventive stormwater ideas. This year’s winners include City of Dover Superintendent of Public Works and Utilities Bill Boulanger. Bill was nominated by Jamie Houle of the UNH Stormwater Center and was selected to receive the award because of his optimistic, enthusiastic approach for developing new, cost effective ways to manage stormwater. Bill’s work on the Berry Brook Restoration Project in Dover exemplifies his dedication to finding simpler ways to treat stormwater runoff without sacrificing performance. In addition, Bill is viewed as a leader in municipal stormwater management. He is very generous with his time and knowledge – if a community needs stormwater technical assistance, Bill steps right up and delivers. His unique designs and approaches are being adopted by communities throughout the region.
Congratulations, Bill. You are a stormwater superhero!
