Boise-Based Command Center Assisting Hurricane-Hit Easterners


A Boise-based command center is playing a key role in assisting hundreds of thousands of East Coast residents to cope with the impact of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene.

United Water opened a national command center in Boise to coordinate the company's response to the hurricane. United Water owns or operates water and wastewater utilities up and down the East Coast, from Georgia to New Hampshire.

"[Boise] is not in the storm path and the talented team of Boise professionals has a wealth of expertise to help coordinate and support response efforts which might be needed by our East Coast operations," said Bob Iacullo, president of United Water.
