Sioux Falls, SD — A Sibley public servant has been honored by the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System for his service to the system.

Lewis & Clark recently had their annual meeting in Sioux Falls.  Larry Pedley of Sibley received the “Lewis & Clark Trailblazer Award” for his long-time support of the project and service on the board of directors. 

Troy Larson, Lewis & Clark’s Executive Director says, “This is our organization’s highest honor.  It was also announced that Lewis & Clark’s new meter building at Sibley will be dedicated in Larry’s honor when it is completed later this year.”

The award is a painting depicting Lewis & Clark’s namesake explorers at the top of Spirit Mound, which is a few miles north of the L&C treatment plant near Vermillion. Larson says it’s one of only a few locations where it is known that the explorers stopped during the Corps of Discovery. 

Larson says it is a “well-deserved honor for a true public servant!”
