Silver Cover & Golden Manhole & PICK
Silver Cover
The Order of the Silver Cover is the Pretreatment, Pollution Prevention, and Stormwater (P3S) Committee's service award and the highest honor which the Committee bestows on volunteer members. The  award was first presented in 1987 by the Industrial and Hazardous Waste Committee, the forerunner of the now-titled Pretreatment, Pollution Prevention and Stormwater Committee. The criteria for the award is long-term, dedicated, high effort-level service to the Committee in the furtherance of the Committee's mission and organizational responsibilities. The selection sub-committee is comprised of 5 Committee members including 3 senior former Committee chairpersons who are also members of the Order, plus the most recent inductees from the north and the south. Each year the Silver Cover selection sub-committee evaluates individuals  as may be nominated by each of the sub-committee members. Induction of  nominees occurs if  any are deemed by majority vote of the sub-committee to fully meet the standards for induction. The award is presented in very small numbers, usually 2 or less per year, and if no nominations occur or if no nominee is determined to qualify, then no inductions occur. Induction into the Order of the Silver Cover is for life and no Committee member once inducted is thereafter eligible for re-induction. The induction ceremony, if any induction occurs in a particular year, takes place at the P3S Annual Conference awards luncheon.
