At its regularly scheduled meeting on February 27, 2013, the Board of Directors of Aqua America, Inc. (the "Company") voted to continue the term of Mary C. Carroll as a member of the Company's Board of Directors until the end of 2013 and Ms. Carroll agreed. In June 2012, Ms. Carroll had reached the retirement age of 72 for directors, but in May 2012 the Board of Directors requested that she remain on the Board of Directors until the 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
