Lake Forest Park Water District is honored to present the 2017 ‘Water Protector Award’ to Lake Forest Park Water District Citizen Advisory Committee (Adcom) member Eric Strom. The Water Protector Award is awarded to individuals and organizations that show exceptional leadership in protection of LFPWD’s drinking water.

Eric Strom is an original member of the LFPWD Advisory Committee, and has been active in several Adcom sub committees. As an individual member he proposed and developed a storm water runoff testing program. The results of the study have been instrumental in the District’s continual effort to protect its wells and well fields. Eric also has been active at many District public outreach events, including local elementary science nights and the LFP Green Fair. He and other Adcom members developed a science curriculum based on aquifer protection and water conservation for elementary students. He and other Advisory members recently presented the new aquifer unit at Lake Forest Park Elementary School to all fourth grade classes. Lake Forest Park Water District is fortunate to have active community support from people like Eric and an Advisory Committee that is committed to protecting its water. We celebrate Eric’s dedication.

LFPWD Commissioners; Dave Hammond, Eli Zehner and Bill Donahue, our General Manager; Alan Kerley, District staff and our community thank him for his service.
