EPA official gets behind-the-scenes tour of WSSC Water’s testing lab
A top-ranking Environmental Protection Agency official got a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the nation’s largest water utilities.
Radhika Fox, an assistant administrator for the EPA’s Office of Water, toured WSSC Water’s under-construction raw water pipeline and its Silver Spring laboratory, where 500,000 water and wastewater samples are tested each year.
“This laboratory facility is just really remarkable,” Fox said at the conclusion of her tour of the WSSC water lab.
Carla Reid, general manager and CEO of WSSC Water, said visits like this allow members of her team to speak directly with government officials and clarify each group’s needs and expectations.
