Oct. 14th our speaker will be Twig Holland, a spokesperson for Aquarion Water Company.
A graduate of Fairfield University, Twig Holland's career spans nearly twenty years working in the public domain. As the former Director of Purchasing for the Town of Fairfield, she was responsible for the procurement of all goods and services required by the town and its school system. Most recently, Twig has worked for the Bridgeport, Connecticut-based Aquarion Water Company, serving as Public Information Coordinator. In early 2016, when Flint, Michigan faced the extremely dangerous situation of having excessive amounts of lead in its water, Aquarion took a leading role within the water industry to inform its customers that: firstly, there was no lead problem, and secondly, that the company was available to assist school systems in testing for lead in the water supply. Twig served as the point person in these two important areas of concern.
In the Summer of 2016, Aquarion was faced with a severe drought. Working closely with the Aquarion Corporate Communications Department, Twig undertook the important role of providing education for schools and local community groups located in southwestern Connecticut.
Twig is committed to continuing to provide quality information to our community.
