The Board of Directors of the Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO) has a new chairperson. Effective 8th February, 2016, Ms. Alison King assumed the position of chairman of WASCO. Ms Alison King replaces Mr. Egbert Louis, who served as Chairman of WASCO for four years, from January 2012 to January 2016.
Alison King, an engineer by profession, has served as a member of the WASCO Board of Directors for the last four years and brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the water sector to her new position. She takes her position at the helm at an important juncture for WASCO, as the company embarks on the major exercise of de-silting the John Compton Dam, while simultaneously undertaking the redevelopment of the water systems in the Dennery Valley and Vieux Fort.
In welcoming the new Chairman to her position, the Minister with responsibility for the water sector, Senator Hon. Dr. James Fletcher, expressed his profound gratitude for the excellent leadership provided by the outgoing chairman, Egbert Louis, who guided WASCO through a challenging period and laid the groundwork for the dramatic improvements in the service provided by the water company. Minister Fletcher indicated that he was very confident that the new Chair and her Board of Directors would build on this platform and that WASCO would continue its evolution into a modern, responsive, customer-focused water and sewerage company, efficiently serving the needs of all residents on the island.
