Support Water-Science Learning through WEF and SIWI

Started in 1997, the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) is considered the most prestigious award for water-related science, both nationally and internationally. The prize was developed to model the Stockholm Water Prize, which has been compared to the Nobel Prize for water research.

The prize encourages enthusiasm in today’s youth regarding water issues, build an international community of young scientists bonded together for the water environment, raise public awareness about the future of water resources, and develop and ensure future leadership in the water-quality community by attracting the best and brightest young people into the water-sector field.

Your donation supports water-science learning through the Water Environment Federation’s relationship with the Stockholm International Water Institute. Donations will be used to directly support students at the U.S. SJWP national competition and the international competition in Stockholm, Sweden.

Both personal and corporate donations are welcome and appreciated at any level. Continuing reading or Donate now

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
