The Western Australian Government has announced new appointments for the South-West’s two regional water service suppliers, Busselton Water and Aqwest.


State Water Minister Bill Marmion announced the appointment of David McDonald and Christopher Boulton as new members of Busselton’s Water Board.


“These two new appointments, along with the existing board, will be tasked with continuing to build upon the solid foundation left by long-serving retiring chairman David Reid,” he said.


“I thank David for his stewardship as chair and his long-running commitment to Busselton Water over 15 years through a very challenging time in the water industry.


“Mr McDonald and Mr Boulton will both serve three-year terms, starting today and expiring on May 31, 2015. The new members have strong ties to the Busselton community and their backgrounds in public health and education bring a diversity of skills to the board.”
