I feel very fortunate to be involved in something so important as water and wastewater treatment.

Growing up in southern Ohio and West Virginia in the late 1960's, I saw first hand what happens if pollution is allowed to get out of control, and how it impacts everyone and our environment.

More importantly, by living in one of the most beautiful places on earth my commitment is even stronger to protect this water environment for future generations.
