Representatives from investor-owned water companies will ring the closing bell March 21 at 4 p.m. EST
Middlesex Water Co., a provider of water, wastewater and related services primarily in New Jersey and Delaware has announced that Dennis W. Doll, chairman, president and CEO of Middlesex Water Co., will join with CEOs of Connecticut Water Service Inc., The York Water Co. and Artesian Resources Corp. and various company and industry representatives in ringing The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell Thursday, March 21, 2014 at 4 p.m. EST.
The companies represent the four investor-owned water companies listed on The NASDAQ Stock Market. Also joining Middlesex Water, will be Michael Deane, executive director of the National Assn. of Water Cos. (NAWC), a national trade association representing all aspects of the private water service industry. Doll was elected president of NAWC in October 2013.
"Our companies continue to deliver a vital service to large populations every day and work to ensure the reliability of water infrastructure in addition to all other aspects of service delivery. It is an honor to share in this observance of World Water Day as we work together to ensure this fragile resource is never taken for granted," said Doll. "It's particularly fitting that this year's World Water Day theme is the relationship between water and energy as this reflects strategic initiatives in our company, having expanded beyond our suite of water, wastewater, contract operations, and ancillary services to include renewable energy as related to the water/energy nexus."
Middlesex Water unveiled a renewable energy public private partnership at the Village of Ridgewood, New Jersey's wastewater treatment plant in late 2013, whereby electricity is now being produced from the plant's wastewater treatment process.
