FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Laurel – April 22, 2016: – Carla A. Reid, who began her tenure as General Manager and CEO of WSSC in January, has assessed her first 100 days on the job and is sharing it with the public. In an open letter to WSSC’s customers and key stakeholders, Reid details her efforts to reach and learn from WSSC’s employees and a wide range of individuals and groups that rely on the Commission for its essential water and wastewater services.

Reid returned to WSSC earlier this year after a ten-year period in which she served the staff of both county executives in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. She is the 12th general manager and the first woman to serve in this capacity in the Commission’s 97-year history. Reid began her 20-year career at WSSC in 1986, ultimately serving as Deputy General Manager from 2005-2006.

“As I pass the 100-day mark I want to update our 1.8 million customers on what I’ve been doing,” explains Reid. “I bring a new perspective, but I never lost sight of the importance of WSSC and our customers. For me, it is a dream job. I am energized and I bring that energy back to WSSC.”

The letter can be found in its entirety at WSSC’s website.

For 100 years, WSSC has proudly served the citizens of Prince George’s and Montgomery counties – providing drinking water that has always met strict Safe Drinking Water Act standards and protecting the environment through vital water resource recovery services. Our vision is to be THE world-class water utility, where excellent products and services are always on tap.
