News Stream – January 2020

A new year, and a new decade! In this month’s News Stream, NTMWD Executive Director Tom Kula takes a look back at the water investments needed over the last ten years to support our region’s future.

We also take a look back at the career of Joe Stankiewicz who retired after nearly 40 years with the District, the 2019 data from showing well over half the year did not need supplemental watering, and a look ahead at the 2020 water treatment plant tour dates for our Member City and Customer entities officials.

We’ve got event listings, recent news and more from our Member Cities and Customers.
