Water IRC Chair – George Wall

Supplying safe drinking water to our communities and the management of wastewater to protect the environment are the cornerstones of our role. Above and beyond this, the water industry is becoming even more customer focussed and is increasingly using digital technology and real-time data in managing operations. Providing more accurate and real-time information to customers allows them to monitor and better manage how they consume our services. Creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and digital skills are key qualities for the workforce ”.
