Head Of DC Water Speaking About Cooperation
Drinking water has been part of the national conversation since the discovery of lead in Flint, Michigan’s water supply last year. That’s one reason the Prairie Rivers Network has invited George Hawkins to speak at their annual dinner Friday in Champaign. Hawkins is the General Manager and CEO of DC Water, one of the largest municipal water companies in the country.
Illinois Public Media’s Brian Moline spoke with Hawkins about some of the issues facing municipal water supplies in the United States, starting with the lessons to take from the problems in Flint.
