DIRECTOR BROU TO SERVE ADDITIONAL YEAR ON WATER UTILITY COUNCIL
St. Charles Parish Waterworks Director Robbie Brou is set to serve another term as a Louisiana representative on the Water Utility Council of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Southwest Section. The term will expire in October 2018.
“As members of the Utility Council we attempt to gauge what regulatory or water quality issues are important to our membership,” said Brou. “We then advance these issues on a national level, through the U.S. Congress and AWWA national, as well as through our own state legislation and regulators.”
The purpose of the Water Utility Council is to develop action programs to initiate, evaluate, respond and comment, to the extent permissible under sections within the framework of Section and American Water Works Association policies, on legislative, regulatory and other matters which directly affect water utilities and to encourage provision of better water service to the consuming public.
Brou has served as the parish’s Director of Waterworks since 2000 and has been a member of the council since 2016.
