DURHAM N.C. — Bill Holman, director of state policy for Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will be among the panelists featured on the Sunday (Nov. 21) broadcast of NC SPIN.

The program, which tackles a variety of issues facing North Carolina, will air the second part of its two-part series on NC H20, an October conference focused on water issues in the state.

Sunday’s 30-minute broadcast will share highlights from discussions by panelists on water financing and rate pressures. In addition, Holman and others will weigh in on policy hurdles and solutions related to water.

Holman has handled water policy in North Carolina for more than 30 years. Since 2007, he has co-led the UNC-Duke Water Allocation Study Team. Earlier this year, he was reappointed by N.C. Sen. Marc Basnight to advise the state on water issues through the State Water Infrastructure Commission (SWIC).
