Excerpt from recent post on the Water Summit in Washington, DC from Global Water Intelligence:”We have a rock star in the house: George Hawkins, boss of DC Water. He is a Princeton and Harvard educated lawyer who wears his DC Water staff shirt wherever he goes. As a child, he watched Ohio’s Cuyahoga river burn, and made water protection his mission. What he didn’t sign up for was the parlous state of the capital’s water infrastructure: high profile main breaks punctuate his life with alarming regularity. It has made him the most passionate advocate for investment in water infrastructure. If all of America’s public water utility leaders could make such an articulate case for spending on water, there would be none of the current pessimism which hangs over the industry.”Post from the Global Water Intelligence on the recent Water Summit in Washington, DC.
