Hats off to McWane Ductile Eastern U.S. Sales Engineer Roy Mundy, who was appointed to the national American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) Utility Management Systems and Business Practices for Operation and Maintenance Standards committees.
Committee members are responsible for providing technical expertise in the development of standards for the water, wastewater, and reclaimed water utility industry recognized around the country. Candidates must demonstrate subject matter expertise, have knowledge of the standards development process, and be committed to active participation. Roy certainly qualifies, and we congratulate him on his three-year appointment!
