Chronicle news services 

COTTAGE GROVE — Ray Pardee retired on June 30 after 30 years of employment with the City of Cottage Grove. Pardee started on July 24, 1990, working in the Water Production Division. 

On May 26, 2000, replacing retiring Brian Ducker, Pardee was promoted to water treatment plant superintendent. He led improvements to the City’s water treatment plant and distribution system. In 2008, the Row River Treatment plant was expanded from a 2 MGD sand filter treatment system to a 4 MGD Pall Membrane treatment system. 

In 2010, Pardee assisted the Row River Valley Water District as it took ownership of the Layng Creek Treatment Plant from the City. In 2017, the new Taylor Pump Station was completed and went into operation replacing the old Taylor Pump Station and Cottage Heights Pump Station. 

The last major upgrade he has overseen is the current expansion of the Row River Water Treatment Plant from 4 MGD to 6 MGD production. The expansion is expected to be complete in September of 2020. Pardee and the treatment plant received many awards and recommendations over the past 20 years.
