The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) has recognized Dante Destefano, Corix Director of Regulatory Affairs, as their March 2022 Positive Wave Award winner. This was for Dante’s work leading the effort to introduce North Carolina's multi-year rate plan legislation, passed in 2021.
Although Dante was individually recognized, this was a team effort led by Dante, Don Denton, SVP East Region, and Corix's regulatory team. It also included vital contributions from other North Carolina utilities, regulators, and outside legal counsel. Their collective efforts have helped install a system of rate filings that is better for customers, regulators, and utilities like Corix. The work provides a model for other jurisdictions.
The NAWC Positive Wave Award recognizes water industry professionals who go above and beyond in support of delivering safe and reliable water to customers. Water company employees from across the US can submit candidates based on their contributions to their company, the water industry, and their communities.
