Environmental Preservation Awards
The Department of Building and Development has an awards program to identify and recognize development projects in Loudoun County each year that have achieved the highest standards of performance for the preservation of the county's natural resources through erosion and sediment control.
The program also is intended to promote sound environmental protection as a priority in the construction sequence while meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Loudoun County Facilities Standards Manual and the Virginia Erosion and Sediment Control Handbook.
The winners of the 2015 Loudoun County Environmental Preservation Awards are:
