PNCWA Member Spotlight: Sid Fredrickson

#MyWaterLegacy (from the Coeur d'Alene Press)

After 30 years with the city of Coeur d’Alene, Wastewater Superintendent Sid Fredrickson will retire at the end of 2016. The city will host a public open house in honor of Fredrickson from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Dec. 14 at the city of Coeur d’Alene Library Community Room, 702 E. Front Ave. Fredrickson joined the city in November 1986 as the street department superintendent and began his tenure with the city's Wastewater Department in 1991.

Under his leadership, the city’s wastewater facilities have undergone numerous upgrades to ensure quality service and respond to the ever-changing regulatory landscape both in the state and at the federal government level. In 2013, Frederickson earned the William D. Hatfield Award from the Water Environment Federation and the Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association, which is presented to operators of wastewater treatment plants for outstanding performance and professionalism. Fredrickson is also known in the community for giving hundreds of tours of the facility since 1991. Groups of children from schools, higher education officials and other community members have gotten a glimpse of the treatment plant with Frederickson as their guide. Continue reading at Coeur d'Alene Press.
