Value of Water Series: Utility Perspective with Buffalo Sewer Authority

Oct. 23, 2020
Podcast hosts share the second interview, focusing on the utility perspective, in this month's special Value of Water Series

In this special episode of Talking Under Water, One Water, One Podcast, hosts Bob Crossen, Lauren Del Ciello and Katie Johns share the second interview in the four-part Value of Water Series. Each Friday in October, TUW is releasing a special episode in conjunction with the Value of Water Campaign – a US Water Alliance campaign – and Imagine a Day Without Water, which is October. 21. 

The series will share diverse voices and perspectives on solving water access, equity and affordability issues starting with the role of one water before digging into the utility perspective, a community group perspective and finally a perspective from the ground floor on water access. In this episode, Bob interviews OJ McFoy, the general manager for Buffalo Sewer Authority, about the affordability programs that they have implemented in Buffalo, New York. 

The final two episodes will air on Oct. 23 and 30. Next week’s episode will feature Katie’s interview with Brenda Coley and Kirsten Shead, co-executive directors of the Milwaukee Water Commons. They discuss water equity and the value of water from a community group perspective. 

The TUW hosts are committed to elevating conversations surrounding issues of water access, equity and affordability and the role of one water in driving change. We encourage you to reach us at [email protected] to share your thoughts and start a dialogue.
