CH2M HILL'S LINDA MACPHERSON HONORED BY AMERICA'S CLEAN WATER FOUNDATION

 CH2M HILL'S LINDA MACPHERSON HONORED
 BY AMERICA'S CLEAN WATER FOUNDATION
 The America's Clean Water Foundation will be presenting its President's Award to senior water policy specialist Linda Macpherson of CH2M HILL, a national and international environmental engineering firm. Macpherson will be honored at an Oct. 16 Year of Clean Water Gala Award Dinner held in Washington.
 A member of the Foundation's Steering Committee since its inception in 1989, and the current chair of the Environmental Education Committee for the Oregon Association of Clean Water Agencies, Macpherson is being recognized for her continued contributions to water quality stewardship and educational outreach programs. Highlights of these activities include her promotion, development and use of innovative learning techniques (e.g., Ecomaster, an interactive environmental awareness computer game), environmental theater projects and outreach strategies aimed at water resource conservation.
 Foundation President Roberta Haley Savage comments on Macpherson's achievements: "Linda has served as the northwestern United States coordinator for the Year of Clean Water and has done an outstanding job of involving citizens, both young and old, in creating a personal stewardship mentality. Clean water is not just the responsibility of government, industry or someone else -- it's everyone's responsibility."
 Oct. 18 marks the 20th anniversary of the passage of the Clean Water Act; and President Bush, along with Congress and 48 governors, designated 1992 as the Year of Clean Water. The America's Clean Water Foundation, a non-profit service organization, was established to increase public awareness of the value of the nation's water resources and to coordinate the 20th anniversary celebration of the Clean Water Act. The Oct. 16 banquet is the culmination of this celebration, and in the words of Savage, it will focus attention on "turning the Year of Clean Water into the Year of Clean Water."
