Report: Water Chief Hired After Fired

Most of the Bristol County Water Authority board was unaware of Pamela Marchand's termination from her previous Providence position before it hired her, according to a Hummel Report.


Pamela Marchand, executive director of the Bristol County Water Authority for almost nine months, was terminated late last year from her previous position with the Providence Water Supply Board, and only one member of the BCWA board seems to have known about that situation before she was hired, according to Jim Hummel of Barrington in his Hummel Report.

Marchand was terminated, apparently without cause, with a quarter of a million dollar buyout of her contract by the Providence board, which was not a secret. But the Hummel Report says the Providence board won’t talk about the reason for her departure so it still remains something of a mystery.

Marchand, too, will not discuss the reason she left the Providence Water Supply Board, said Hummel in his report.

Patch reported back in February that Marchand left PWSB with the buyout, a letter of recommendation, and a reported agreement that neither side would sue nor disparage one another about the breakup. Click here for the complete story by the Hummel Report.
