MPW chairman receives public officials certification

  • Saturday, August 16, 2014

It's critical that public officials understand utility operations and finance to help make informed decisions. For that reason, the American Water Works Associations offers public officials the opportunity to participate in a three-day certification program. The program is designed to help elected or public officials better understand key water issues and take smart steps to address them.

During the 2014 America Water Works Annual Conference, Mount Pleasant Waterworks' chairman Rick Crosby completed the three-day certification.

“Our commissioners have always been active on the local and national level and strive to stay up-to-date with our ever-changing industry,” said General Manager Clay Duffie. The certification program includes three specialized courses covering the basics of water treatment and distribution, governance, finance and asset management.

“We were elected by the citizens to protect the most valuable resource they receive: clean, safe water. It is for that reason that I take time to continue to learn about our ever-changing industry,” said Crosby. “Through this certification, I acquired a renewed ability to confidently discuss the workings of our industry and make informed and educated decisions.”
