Susan Tanner Holmes, Chairwoman

"NACWA was the voice for all utilities who faced nutrient reductions to protect the Chesapeake Bay in a landmark case...Without [the successful] outcome, EPA would've imposed more stringent and costly requirements upon municipal wastewater treatment providers, and restricted or prohibited new sanitary sewer taps."

"NACWA recently told its membership about a budget rider that...could have cost Great Lakes’ utilities $70 billion. Together, we were able to significantly change the language so that it would be acceptable."
