We are excited to announce Kevin T. Krejny as the new Utilities Director. Krejny joins the City of Piqua team with extensive public sector experience, most recently as the Water Reclamation Manager for Montgomery County Environmental Services.
“Having an efficient and well-maintained infrastructure is vital to serving our residents, businesses, and visitors,” said City Manager Paul Oberdorfer. “Kevin is devoted to making sure these reliable assets are accessible to our citizens.”
The Piqua Utilities Director is responsible for planning, directing, coordinating, and evaluating the programs and activities of the Water Treatment Plant, the Wastewater Treatment Plant, OEPA Stormwater Program, water distribution, sanitary sewer collection, and stormwater maintenance.
Krejny currently holds a Class IV Wastewater Certification, a Class III Water Supply Certification, and a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Health Sciences from Wright State University.
During his time at Montgomery County Krejny successfully upgraded inefficient treatment technologies to provide enhanced treatment and lowered operating costs through long-term capital improvements and upgrades.
Krejny has lowered operating costs, for several water and wastewater facilities, by focusing on energy and chemical usage and efficient operations. Keeping these major operating costs low can help stabilize utility rates paid by the customers.
For the past two decades, Krejny has worked for Clark County Utilities, Greene County, City of Fairborn Wastewater Treatment Plant, and MACTEC Engineering & Consulting, Inc. in various water and wastewater capacities.
