Attorney Glenn S. Gerstell To Serve Second Term As DC Water and Sewer Authority Chairman

The District of Columbia Council today confirmed the reappointment by Mayor Anthony Williams of Glenn S. Gerstell as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the DC Water and Sewer Authority (WASA). WASA is an independent agency that provides drinking water to the District and wastewater treatment to 1.2 million people in the region. During today’s legislative meeting, the Council also confirmed the Mayor’s reappointments of WASA board members Alexander A. McPhail and David J. Bardin.

Gerstell, managing partner of the Washington, D.C. office of the international law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, has lead the 11-member WASA Board of Directors since January 2001.

“I am honored by the Mayor’s confidence in my leadership and his recognition of the good work that WASA has done in serving the District and our capital region,” Gerstell said. “I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on the Board as we build upon our successes.”

Under his chairmanship, the agency has logged a number of achievements including two bond rating upgrades, several industry awards, improved operating efficiency, a new rate structure, enhanced customer communication, water system improvements, automated meter reading, and the undertaking of one of the most significant capital expenditures in the District - a quarter billion dollars in construction activity at the WASA Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Plant.

A highlight among agency achievements has been the favorable settlement of a lawsuit involving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other parties that gives the green light to WASA’s Long-Term Control Plan to reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs), principally in the Anacostia River. Engineering design work for this 20-year, $2 billion project begins in mid-June 2005.
