outages, broken water mains draining
systems and floods, and they all pose
a challenge that has to be dealt with,
depending upon the situation. 

How do you think rural
water systems could
operate more effectively?
I always try to instill in the system
operations specialist not to put "it" off and
go ahead and do the task. I have always
been one to not procrastinate-the job or
task will need to be done sooner or later,
so why wait if you have the time go ahead
and do it? It's hard for me to see systems

that have put off repairs or maintenance that
could have been repaired with a simple fix,
but instead, they wait until it becomes an
emergency. This could cause a health hazard
to the community they are serving or even
a rate increase that could improve the cash
flow to assist the repairs and maintenance
because the system doesn't want to listen
to complaints about the increase.

What's the best advice
you could give to rural
water systems?
Don't be afraid to try new technologies.
Step out of the box-just because

it's been done one way for the last
30 years doesn't mean you can't try
something new!

What advice would you
give to a young person
who wants to embark on a
water career?
Stick with it. Hang in there. Have an
open mind and remember that one day
you are out there pulling weeds out of the
wastewater lagoon and in a blink of an
eye you to could be the next Circuit Rider
for your state association with a little hard
work and determination. ●
