The project was cited and awarded for work with an ASIC Professional in addressing unique or critical irrigation challenges.
The award was slated to be presented during the 2020 ASIC National Conference Awards Banquet that has since been rescheduled due to COVID-19. Steven Hohl, FASIC, Water Concern, will be officially presented with the award during the 2021 National Conference in New Orleans.
Excellence in Irrigation award winners are selected based on the quality of project planning, design functionalism, environmental responsibility and relevance. The projects are independently judged by a jury of knowledgeable and nationally recognized members of academia, irrigation consultants, industry members or public agency officials who look for evidence of unique problem solving, forward thinking water resource management solutions and clarity in presentation.
