NAWC Congratulates Commissioner Eric Anderson on Appointment to Chair NARUC’s Committee on Water

Washington, D.C. (November 6, 2019) National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) President Nick Wagner on Monday appointed Commissioner Eric Anderson of the Idaho Public Utilities Commission as chair of the NARUC Committee on Water. National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) President and CEO Robert F. Powelson issued the following statement in response:

“On behalf of our member companies and the industry, we congratulate Commissioner Anderson on his appointment to serve as chair of one of NARUC’s most important committees. Water is the only public utility service that consumers ingest, so the importance of ensuring the safety and quality of drinking water cannot be overstated.

Commissioner Anderson has been a true champion for the communities that he has represented during his time in the Idaho Legislature and through his service as a member of the Idaho Public Utilities Commission. Commissioner Anderson’s previous experience leaves no doubt that he possesses the innovative leadership necessary to increase awareness and understanding about the issues facing the industry.

I look forward to working with Commissioner Anderson and NARUC’s Committee on Water to continue ensuring that NAWC’s member companies are providing the highest quality water and wastewater services to the customers we serve.

NAWC would also like to thank outgoing Water Committee Chair Mary-Anna Holden for her incredible leadership during the past three years. Commissioner Holden has been a tireless advocate for meaningful water infrastructure investment.”
