Jiedine will be working with the Massachusetts Water Resource Commission on laws and policies that advance water efficiency, conservation, sustainability, and affordability. Massachusetts ranks number 13 out of the 50 US states on The Alliance for Water Efficiency’s scorecard which ranks states based on their adoption and implementation of state-level water related laws and policies. Although 13 is a good ranking there is room for improvement and Jiedine will be making policy recommendations which make sense for Massachusetts and which are cost effective.
