The 2012 recipient of the Lee Agger Award is Charles Conway formerly of U.S. EPA and NEIWPCC!
On Thursday, September 13, 2012, the Lee Agger Award was presented to Charles Conway at the MWWCA Convention at Sugarloaf.
Virtually anyone in New England who has worked in wastewater treatment for more than a couple of years has met, heard from or been trained in some capacity by Chuck Conway. His 40 plus year career in environmental services first began with the US Army Corps of Engineers after he returned from Vietnam in 1968 followed by a 28 year career at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Chuck joined NEIWPCC in 1998 where he worked as Manager of Training Operations until he retired earlier in 2012. At NEIWPCC, Chuck supervised the Commission’s extensive training program by developing, scheduling, coordinating and instructing courses for environmental professionals.
Most recently, Chuck has played a key role in NEIWPCC’s efforts to train the next generation of wastewater treatment facility managers. He worked closely with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management in the development and coordination of its highly successful and widely praised managerial “boot camp,” and he has played an equally pivotal role in Maine’s Management Candidate School.
The Lee Agger Award is presented annually at the Maine Wastewater Control Association's Convention. Selection criteria is based on meritorious support and service to environmental training in the State of Maine by an individual(s) or facility/organization. Nominations are made by the JETCC staff and board members or can be solicited from others in the industry.
