Former National Ground Water Association Government Affairs Director Christine Reimer has received a 2015 Honorary Member Award for more than 30 years of service to the association. Retired US EPA drinking water official Charles A. Job assumed duties as Regulatory Affairs Manager effective January 1, reporting to Lauren Schapker, Director of Government Affairs. And a sad note from the Association: former President Worth Pickard, owner of Carolina Well & Pump Co. in Sanford, NC, died November 17, 2015. From humble beginnings as a driller’s helper in 1951, Pickard rose to the pinnacle of his profession in 1990 with his selection as President of the National Water Well Association (later renamed NGWA).
