Promoting Environmental Justice as an Essential Best Management Practice for Utilities in Economically Distressed Communities 

Andrew Kricun, P.E., BCEE

Executive Director/Chief Engineer

Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority

Abstract:  Clean water utilities face tremendous challenges as they work to deal with aging infrastructure, increasing economic pressures and climate changes. But, as the flip side of "challenge" is "opportunity", they also have tremendous opportunities to make a positive difference as well. The Camden County MUA's case study demonstrates that clean water utilities have the resources and wherewithal to take a leadership role in environmental stewardship and community service.

Andrew Kricun is the Executive Director and Chief Engineer of the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority, operators of an 80 MGD wastewater treatment plant in Camden, NJ. Mr. Kricun has 30 years of experience in wastewater and biosolids management. He graduated with honors from Princeton University with a degree in Chemical Engineer. He also holds a professional engineer's license in civil engineering and a board certification from the American Institute of Environmental Engineers. He is also a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA).
