The NCPPP President-Elect and two other Council members will take part in a roundtable discussion on Public-Private Partnerships for Water Supply and Treatment as part of the U.S. House Panel on Public-Private Partnerships on March 25 at 10 a.m.
NCPPP President-Elect Sandra Sullivan, vice president of government & industry relations for Veolia North America, will provide an overview of how P3 water projects work across the country and the role NCPPP’s members play in providing water and water-treatment services to communities.
Sullivan will be joined by NCPPP members Dan Sugarman, vice president of operational strategy at United Water, and Bruce Tobey, a partner with Pannone, Lopes, Devereaux & West, LLP. Tobey previously served as the mayor/CEO of Gloucester, Mass.
Sugarman and Tobey are members of the NCPPP Water Institute, which advocates for and facilitates the formation of public-private partnerships for water/wastewater projects and services at the federal, state and local levels.
The special 11-member panel, chaired by Rep. John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.), was formed in January.
“Aside from a selection of highway projects, utilization of P3s in U.S. transportation, economic development, and water infrastructure has been limited,” House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) said at the time. “The panel’s recommendations will be used as the committee continues to develop future legislation.”
