Spring 2015 Water Policy News

Feature Story: ‘The Accidental Pioneer – Carol Paul’s Route to the Greenville Water Authority’

by Lynda Ginsparg

Female water operators are rare in Pennsylvania.  But for nearly 30 years, Carol Paul has worked in this male-dominated field. In this issue of Water Policy News, we profile Carol Paul, tracing the path that led to her current position as Authority Manager for the Greenville Municipal Water Authority in Mercer County.  When she started out, she did not realize that protecting public health through safeguarding drinking water would become her life’s work. Paul also shares her views on the challenges faced by small water systems across the state.
