A dozen people, projects and public policy measures earned 2010 BoatU.S. Recreational Boating Access Awards, the group announced.

The award honors a group, government body, business, individual or nonprofit organization that has succeeded in preserving or improving public waterway access for boaters. Judging criteria included how well challenges were overcome; the direct impact of the solution; and how adaptable the approach would be in other areas facing similar water access challenges.

BoatU.S. created the award program in 2007 to highlight successes in protecting water access as boaters and communities were losing marina slips, service yards and launching areas. The goal is to draw national attention to innovative solutions and share success stories that can help others to solve local waterway access challenges.
