The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has awarded the Excellence in Sustainability Award to the City of Plano.
The NEHA is recognizing Plano for its water conservation efforts and public education campaign. A combination of pro-active tools including an online training module for proper use of irrigation systems, workshops, classes, and direct mail, resulted in significant water savings for the City and the North Texas Municipal Water District. Plano is the only governmental organization to win the national award twice. The City won it in 2008, the first year the award was presented. The award will be presented at the NEHA conference in San Antonio Wednesday.
