Southwest Water Authority honors late Brian Roth with 'Resolution of Appreciation'
The late Brian Roth was recognized for his “vision, leadership and dedication which has enabled the Southwest Pipeline Project to provide water to the residents of southwestern North Dakota.”
DICKINSON — The late Brian Roth was posthumously honored with a "Resolution of Appreciation" for his 29 years of service as a member of the Southwest Water Authority (SWA) Board of Directors. The resolution was presented Monday, Jan. 3, at the board’s monthly meeting.
Accepting the resolution were Roth’s wife Gloria and their son, Troy.
Roth was recognized for his “vision, leadership and dedication which has enabled the Southwest Pipeline Project to provide water to the residents of southwestern North Dakota.” SWA Manager/CEO Jen Murray cited Roth’s “distinctive leadership and perseverance . . . demonstrated in his dedication to defining and refining the very mission of the Southwest Pipeline Project.” He received the statewide “Water Wheel Award” for his service at the 2019 North Dakota Water Users Convention.
SWA Chairperson James Odermann praised Roth as “the longest serving member of the board of directors for the Southwest Water Authority. He represented Grant County and SWA with unflappable integrity, intense commitment to excellence and a commitment of service to his constituents, the Southwest Water Authority and the state of North Dakota.”
SWA recently committed to expanding service to under-served areas. Grant County is included in the proposed expansion project area. Sign-up meetings are scheduled for Jan. 19, in Elgin and Carson.
“This expansion was a major goal of Brian’s,” Odermann said in a SWA press release. “He was a major proponent of making sure that rural residents and producers who missed out in the initial construction phase would be able to receive an adequate quantity of high-quality water during this upcoming campaign.”
