The annual award recognizes individual excellence in water efficiency. Vickers was honored for over 25 years of achievements in the water efficiency field, including for her role as having written and spearheaded the inclusion of the nation’s first water efficiency standards for plumbing fixtures in the 1992 U.S. Energy Policy Act, which has saved trillions of gallons of water in the United States over the past twenty years. “Amy has been an unfailing champion for water conservation, wise and efficient water use,” said Mary Ann Dickinson, President and CEO of the Alliance for Water Efficiency upon presentation of the award.  “Her research, analysis, advocacy and leadership has advanced the field of water conservation and educated thousands of water conservation professionals.”
