The Waterbank Business Association has revised its product rating system to an award system, and will no longer certify products, but rather award endorsements to products and services that the WBA finds exemplary. Products that were certified by the WBA remain certified.

The WBA has created a number of awards for excellence. Below is a list of winners by category and year. Winners are chosen among known manufacturers, and do not reflect the entire market.

If you know a product, site, or company you think is exemplary, let the WBA know.
