The City of Midland has hired Laura Wilson as its new Utilities Director.

She had attained the highest license possible from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in both water and wastewater operations, and she is a registered Professional Engineer.

In her new position, Wilson oversees the Utilities Department's Environmental Compliance Division or "lab," Water Purification Plant, Water Pollution Control Plant, water distribution and wastewater collection systems, Spraberry Farm and groundwater well fields, including Paul Davis, T-Bar and the Airport.

She has worked extensively with the City of Abilene and Possum Kingdom Water Supply Corporation, and has formerly held positions with the City of Fort Worth, Brazos River Authority, and the City of Breckenridge.

Assisting Wilson in her new position is Holly McGrath-Rosas, who will remain in her position as Assistant Water Utility Director, and Operations Manager Matt Irvin.
