ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, selected Forest Lake, Minn., resident Nathan Wallerstedt as one of its four Civil Servants of the Year.  

The St. Paul District presents this award annually to the top three or four of its 650 employees. Wallerstedt, who's worked for the Corps of Engineers for almost 6 years, is a project manager at the district’s headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

Wallerstedt received this award in recognition of his outstanding leadership abilities, technical competence and professional commitment. “Nate [Wallerstedt] continually exceeds expectations both at work and in his personal life. He is strong leader dedicated to helping people, lending a hand, and stepping up anytime something needs to get done.” said Aaron Snyder, Wallerstedt’s supervisor. “His leadership, dedication and commitment have directly improved the lives of thousands of people living in the communities of Roseau, Minnesota, by reducing the risk of catastrophic flooding and Minot, North Dakota, by leading efforts to repair damaged levees and pushing for implementation of a permanent solution.”

Wallerstedt will receive his award at the 38th Annual Minnesota Federal Civil Servant of the Year Awards in St. Paul, Minn., at the Crown Plaza Hotel May 8th.

The nearly 650 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, employees working at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states serve the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response. Through the Corps’ Fiscal Year 2014 $100 million budget, nearly 1,600 non-Corps jobs were added to the regional economy as well as $155 million to the national economy.
