LYNNWOOD, Wash., May 17, 2023—After a six-month recruitment process, John McClellan has been selected as the Alderwood Water & Wastewater District’s (AWWD) new General Manager. The AWWD Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce that Mr. McClellan, who has served as the district’s interim General Manager for the past six months, will now serve the district’s residents officially, commencing his permanent role following the Board of Commissioner’s public announcement on Monday, May 15, 2023.

“I am pleased to announce that the Board of Commissioners unanimously agreed to promote John McClellan to the position of General Manager,” said Dean Lotz, President of the AWWD Board of Commissioners. “Over the past six months, it became increasingly obvious that the best candidate for this role was already serving as our interim General Manager. The Board was impressed by John’s consistent and collaborative leadership, his knowledge of the district, his industry expertise, and his positive, existing relationships with staff, Commissioners, and the larger water and sewer community,” added Lotz.

Mr. McClellan is a licensed professional engineer with a long career in the public sector, including 15 years with Everett Public Works. John joined the Alderwood District in November of 2017 as Engineering and Development Director, and in addition to currently serving as AWWD’s interim General Manager, also volunteers as the chair of King County’s Metropolitan Water Pollution Abatement Advisory Committee (MWPAAC). “John has also earned the respect of his peers at other municipalities,” adds Lotz. “The AWWD Board and I look forward to continue working with John as we strive to provide the best possible water and sewer service to our ratepayers.”

The AWWD is a Washington State special purpose district, providing water and wastewater services to southwest Snohomish County twenty miles north of Seattle. Founded in 1931, AWWD is the largest special purpose water and sewer district in Washington state.
