As CEO and General Manager of DC Water, I spend a great deal of time telling the story of the essential work we perform on behalf of the public. In fact, I consider it one of my most important responsibilities.
Unfortunately, my audience doesn’t always include those who matter most – our customers. That’s why I’m joining Twitter to connect with the public and to provide a personal window into my life at DC Water. With support from our customers, DC Water is doing big things, like reducing combined sewer overflows into the Anacostia by 98% and reducing our carbon footprint by generating power from our biosolids.
I look forward to sharing relevant updates, opinions, and the occasional cat photo with the digital world. So let’s get the conversation started by tweeting me @GeorgeHawkinsDC.
I’d also like to note the new look of my blog. The new platform is more media rich, mobile friendly and the host provider is carbon neutral. I hope you like the new look and if you have any feedback that you’d like to share, please email our new digital guy, Andy.Le@dcwater.com.
