Bend’s Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Committee Speaks at Kiwanis Meeting February 27, 2014

Bend’s Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Committee members from the City of Bend will present a speakers forum at our club meeting on February 27, 2014 at Noon at the Bend Golf & Country Club.  Visitors Welcome!

The Committee Members:

Lynn Putnam is a relative new Bend resident, but long-time Oregonian interested in representing citizen concerns on city infrastructure projects. Trained in environmental science, she was a planner for Metro and Clackamas County on wetlands and watershed projects. She served two years on the board of Tualatin Valley Water District, a municipal water provider in Beaverton, OR.

Casey Roats is a lifelong resident and owner of Roats Water, a privately owned water company in Bend.   He has used his knowledge and technical background in operations and maintenance, and general utilities infrastructure in his service on the Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Group and Infrastructure Advisory Committee for the City of Bend.  He also served on the National FFA Officer nomination committee.

Staffer:  Tom Hickmann is a civil engineer with over 20 years’ experience in wastewater, stormwater, water supply, water rights, system design, distribution design and operations, hydraulic modeling, utility management, and utility master planning.

Mr. Hickmann is the City of Bend Engineering & Infrastructure Planning Department Director focusing on oversight and implementation of all master plans and capital improvement projects.  

He has been credited with bringing innovative ideas to the City, solving challenging   issues.  The City was the first entity to use low cost tank mixing technology.  He introduced hydraulic modeling techniques, and implemented an enhanced modeling analysis which has been used as an example nationally, for assessing future infrastructure needs of growing communities.
