Redwater is going to be recognized for their events held during National Public Works Week.
The community won the 2018 Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) National Public Works Week award for a community under 10,000. The award recognized the events put on by the town from May 20-26.
It's the second year Redwater has hosted events for National Public Works Week.
"The reason we arrange this event is to show the public what's the role of the public works staff, the role of the public works department," said infrastructure manager Nawaz Panhwer.
The events included a barbecue, petting zoo, games, contests and equipment displays for kids.
Panhwer explained that winning the award demonstrated how effective their staff is and highlighted their dedication to "provide a better service to the community."
Last year, the CPWA recognized their event with a certificate. The award for this year will be officially announced on Monday (Aug.27) at PWX 2018 in Kansas City.
After the announcement a representative from the CPWA will present an engraved plaque to the community.
