The directors of the Association sadly announce the passing of one of our long time great supporters of the organization.  Phil Ruskowsky passed away on April 14, 2018.  Phil was manager of Black Mountain Irrigation District for many years, and served as a director on the Board for a long time while at BMID.  Phil’s humour, knowledge and very avid interest in many aspects of the water industry was certainly missed when he retired a few years ago…. condolences to Phil’s wife and family from the Water Supply Association.  Phil was a great man and one of a kind…
