Aqua North Carolina, Inc., President Tom Roberts announced the appointment of David Schlobohm as operations manager. Schlobohm is responsible for managing the company's North Carolina operations including operation of 796 water and 60 wastewater facilities as well as maintenance and construction, and the company's capital program.

Among his career highlights over the past 20 years, Schlobohm served as director of utilities for Charlotte County Government in Florida; vice president-Southeast Region for Omega Environmental Services in Lakeland, Florida; and senior vice president/director of operations for ITT Industries-Palm Coast Utility in Palm Coast Florida.

Indiana American Invests in Jeffersonville Treatment Plant

Indiana American Water announced that it is investing an estimated $431,000 in its Jeffersonville Water Treatment Plant in a major filter rehabilitation project that includes replacing materials in all eight filters at the southern Indiana plant.

These filters play an extremely important role in the water treatment process by
removing iron and manganese from the raw water before it enters the distribution
system, enhancing the quality of water. The filter rehabilitation project is expected to be complete by the end of April 2009.

The Southern Indiana Operations and Treatment Center in Jeffersonville was
constructed in 1999. The source of water supply is entirely ground water drawn from
wells located adjacent to the Ohio River.

“The investment is an example of the company’s commitment to providing quality water service to our customers in southern Indiana,” said Southern Operations Director Roger Maynard.
