ABSTRACT
An interview with Evelyn Stacey, executive director of South West Water, is presented. According to Stacey, the idea of outsourcing emerged from a brainstorming session at the water company in the late 1990s. She recalls that it took two to three years to land any major grants. She believes that the outsourcing model could be exportable to other water companies.
