Entries for this year's Water Industry Achievement Awards are in, and the judges have made their difficult decisions. The winners' names, however, are under lock and key, and will remain so until May 23 when all will be revealed at a prestigious awards ceremony and gala dinner at The Vox, Birmingham.

Yet, again we were inundated with entries and the quality was outstandingly high, ensuring that our judges had to make some very tough decisions in selecting their winners in each category.
