Carolina Water Service Names Heigel as New President  

COLUMBIA, SC (January 9, 2018)
-- Catherine Heigel, Chief Operating Officer of Elliott Davis,
LLC and former Director of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental
Control (DHEC), has been named president of Carolina Water Service, effective February 1.
Heigel previously worked as a regulatory lawyer and executive for more than a decade with
Duke Energy Corporation, serving as president of Duke Energy South Carolina in her last role
with the company. “I look forward to joining CWS and working to deliver on the company’s
commitment to providing safe and reliable drinking water and wastewater services in South
Carolina,” said Heigel.

Heigel took over the helm of DHEC in June 2015 and earned accolades for her leadership of
the agency. During her tenure, Heigel initiated the launch of the South Carolina Adopt-a
Stream program with Clemson University to empower citizen volunteers to help monitor
water quality in the state's lakes, rivers and streams. Heigel also successfully managed major
public health and environmental emergencies for the agency, including the October 2015
Flood and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

“We are excited to bring Catherine on board to lead Carolina Water Service. Her extensive
utility and regulatory background, as well as her transformational leadership experience, will
benefit our customers and the communities we serve and be instrumental to CWS’s strategic
growth in the future," said Lisa Sparrow, CEO of parent company, Utilities Inc.
