Kevin Shafer also will take leadership of the Alliance’s Urban Water Sustainability Council as current chair Howard Neukrug is promoted to the vice-chairmanship of the Clean Water America Alliance. “Howard Neukrug and Kevin Shafer are shining stars in the water sector and we’re delighted they’ll both be leaders in the Alliance,” said chair Dick Champion.
