Sewerage and Water Board Executive Director Marcia St. Martin to retire

New Orleans, La - Marcia St. Martin, Executive Director of the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans, has announced that she will step down from her position at the end of the year. The reasoning behind St. Martin's decision is because she will undergo double knee replacement surgery. St. Martin has also served as the Sewerage and Water Board deputy director for 12 years and has been with the company for the past 42 years.

"For the last several decades, I have focused on providing New Orleanians with quality water, sewer, and drainage services," said Ms. St. Martin. "We have come a very long way from devastation to restoration to recovery despite the mighty forces of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike and Isaac. I am proud of our many accomplishments. Our board and staff have made the tough decisions that make our agency viable today. It is never the right time to leave, but I will leave with the satisfaction of knowing that our most caring and dedicated board and employees will continue the rebuilding of this agency that is so critical to the lives and well-being of all of our citizens."

Mayor Mitch Landrieu said, ""Marcia guided the Sewerage and Water Board and its staff through its most trying times. Her bold leadership during the months following the storm and swift response in getting the agency back into operation was critical to our city's recovery. Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of the agency's water, sewerage, and drainage systems, as well as the power plant, but Marcia was committed to the rebuilding of New Orleans. I want to personally thank her for her decades of remarkable service to the people of New
