SuDS Special Award Winner

Paul Shaffer, CIWEM

"It was very humbling to be recognised at the recent susdrain Awards amongst so many fantastic and inspiring nominees and winners (past and present). We were able to make a contribution to SuDS delivery over the years by working with talented project teams and colleagues, supported by helpful Steering Groups, project Chairs and funders. While we still have some way to go, we wouldn't be where we are today without the SuDS community and a growing group of people recognising that SuDS make sense."
