Water News Network Named Best California Public Agency Website
The San Diego County Water Authority's Water News Network website was named "Best Website" among California public agencies for 2020 in the California Public Information Officers EPIC Awards competition. The Water News Network received praise from competition judges for keeping all stakeholders in mind when creating the website, and for its initiative in producing original story content and photos. Other finalists in the Best Website/App category were the City of Santa Clara for its SantaClaraCA.gov website redesign and Contra Costa County for its ‘Virtual Office’ entry.
The EPIC Awards honor work that made a lasting impact, providing an equal chance of winning to all entrants regardless of company or agency size and project budget. Entries are assessed on research and planning efforts that display an understanding of audience objectives and needs for information, development and execution, and how successfully the entrant organization achieves its objectives.
“The Water News Network has become a timely and reliable source of news and information about a variety of water issues, projects and programs affecting more than 3.3 million people across San Diego County. We’re proud to collaborate with our member agencies on this and other outreach and education efforts about region’s most precious natural resource.”
