The City of Whitehorse has announced water and waste services manager David Albisser as Yukon’s representative on the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA). He will replace interim city manager Brian Crist as the territory’s representative.
“Many of our employees are experts in their fields and have a lot to share,” said Whitehorse Mayor Dan Curtis. “I’m confident that Dave Albisser will represent us well and bring back any ideas that can benefit our water and wastewater services for Whitehorse citizens.”
Albisser’s department oversees Whitehorse’s potable water system, including 180 kilometers of piping, as well as the city’s sewer and storm sewer systems and sewage lagoons.
“This is a great opportunity to connect with other managers of municipal water and wastewater systems across the country,” Albisser said. “We exchange information and experience that ultimately improves our operations in Whitehorse.”
