Gilbert public works director Lonnie Frost has been invited as one of six speakers to take part in the "Performance Challenge" session of the Global Water Summit in Berlin, Germany, Saturday through Tuesday.
Past speakers have included former Vice President Al Gore, Queen Noor of Jordan, and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus. The guest of honor this year is Kofi Annan, a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
Frost was invited to speak on the topic of water standards and performance challenges. He will focus on the construction of the Santan Vista Water Treatment Plant. The drinking-water plant operates in partnership with Chandler, using a design that has saved taxpayers millions of dollars.
Frost has worked for the town since October 1984.
