Ten Responsibilities of Board Members

Old or new, here’s a little reminder of the great responsibilities of a Water Utility Board Member

Dear Board Members,

First of all, thank you for your service to the community!

Serving on the board can be demanding. You are providing a vital service. Providing ample, affordable, safe drinking water and wastewater services is essential to your community. This is an awesome responsibility. You are one of a team of dedicated professionals concerned with the details of running a water and wastewater utility. Water and wastewater systems operate quietly in the background. Few people see or think about the miles of water / wastewater lines underground or visit your water and wastewater plants. It is likely that your system has fewer interruptions in service than most electric utilities. As a result, most of what you do is taken for granted and out of sight.

Below is a quick PowerPoint presentation with ten key responsiblities of a Board Member. Whether you're new or have been involved with a water system since Moby Dick was a minnow, it's a easy and quick reminder of our day to day responsibilities.

Again, thank you for your time and dedication.
