 Wendell McCurry Excellence in Water Quality Award

Wendell McCurry was a long time employee of the Division in the water programs and had a strong personal and professional commitment to water quality. During his 33-year tenure with the State of Nevada, Mr. McCurry had tremendous foresight and vision in the field of water pollution control and was a strong advocate of clean water for Nevada.

He established the State of Nevada water quality standards and NPDES permit programs that we continue to implement today. Mr. McCurry not only worked to advance water quality programs at the state level, but was prominent in the national arena as Nevada's representative to the Association of Clean Water Administrators where he was highly influential in shaping national water quality policies.


This award was established to honor the memory of Wendell McCurry who passed in January 2000. The award is made each year to recognize those individuals, firms, organizations, and governmental entities that have made significant contributions to improving the quality of Nevada's water resources.
