Aqua America Chief Environmental Officer Appointed to Pennsylvania Lead Task Force

Aqua America’s Chief Environmental Officer Chris Crockett has been appointed to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Lead Task Force Advisory Committee, established by the Joint State Government Commission, the primary non-partisan research and policy development agency for Pennsylvania’s General Assembly.

The advisory committee is charged with conducting a comprehensive review and analysis of laws, regulations, policies and procedures of the commonwealth and other states regarding an assessment of lead exposure as a public health concern. The committee will report to the state senate its findings and recommendations on Pennsylvania policies and regulations relating to lead testing, abatement and remediation by November 2018.

“I look forward to helping Pennsylvania address the challenges of lead in drinking water and finding solutions to protect our citizens,” said Crockett.

Crockett joined Aqua America as its chief environmental officer in June 2016. He is responsible for overseeing water quality and environmental compliance for all of Aqua’s drinking water and wastewater systems in Pennsylvania and seven other states. Among his responsibilities is oversight of the company’s multi-state-certified laboratory.
