Member Spotlight Seth Walburger

The Onondaga County Water Authority (OCWA) is responsible for providing Central New York with its most vital life source. In order to keep taps flowing, roughly 100 employees with various skill sets and knowledge work together to provide palatable and potable drinking water. Seth Walburger, 27, of OCWA’s Operations Department, views it as a puzzle; each employee, or puzzle piece, is essential to a successful big picture affair. “I like the fact that our goal is to provide people with necessities. It’s our duty to supply good quality water to help them go about their lives,” says Walburger.
Together, let's get the lead out
March 22, 2016
by: David LaFrance, CEO, AWWA
If there is one lesson to be learned from the Flint crisis, it is this: Our communities will be safer in the long run with no lead pipes in the ground. That’s why the board of the American Water Works Association – recognizing our first core principle is the protection of public health -- voted unanimously on March 7 to forge on a path toward the removal of all lead service lines. AWWA believes that as water professionals and a broader society, we should seize this moment of increased awareness to develop solutions for eliminating all risks from lead in water.
