Looking for Excellence in All the Right Places

Posted February 28, 2011

By Jeff Eger, WEF Executive Director

 

 

I’ll use my inaugural blog for this truly outstanding organization to share some thoughts about excellence. That’s excellence as I see it--among our dedicated and passionate volunteers, through continued strong partnerships with MA’s and other important water groups, and at WEF, where the professional staff is a treasure chest of talent and knowledge. During my travels, I’ll be tweeting, blogging, and using other media (social and otherwise) to share examples of excellence with the water quality community. 

 

After a successful meeting with WEF and AWWA Leadership in Denver, I flew into Cincinnati for the 199th meeting of the Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission. As ORSANCO’s immediate past chairman, I’m extremely proud of their work to protect water quality in the Ohio River. In fact, WEF salutes the important work of all such organizations operating in support of a greener, more sustainable water environment.  

 

The Cincinnati, Ohio area was chosen by the Obama Administration to advance and promote technology in the water industry to stimulate economic development, and ORSANCO announced that Executive Director Alan Vicory was selected to chair the newly formed steering committee of the Water Innovation Technology Cluster. Alan is an active WEF leader serving as vice-chair, Regulatory Subcommittee for the Government Affairs Committee and an excellent fit for the assignment. 

 

Speaking of government affairs, I’m very much looking forward to the WEF/AWWA Water Matters! Fly-In in April and hope to see you there for what should be an excellent example of partnerships in action. Meanwhile, I invite readers to share their own examples of excellence in water quality, whether it’s an innovative idea, special accomplishment, milestone or other achievement. Feel free to post your thoughts here or send them to me directly at jeger@wef.org, and I’ll try to publicize them in future blogs or other media. There’s a lot of good stuff happening out there, let’s start looking for (and talking) about it.

Excellent my man! Good work. Warren Buffet famously once said that "Intensity is the price of excellence." He may have something there. BDR has always believed that "Intensity is the fuel of excellence." Either way, with your leadership, WEF is well on its way to a whole new level of excellence. All the best! BDR

Great to have you aboard, Jeff. While "Quality" and "wastewater" are not often thought of in the same sentence by the lay person, wastewater as a product suggests benefit by this relation. I am a proponent of use of "Quality" tools in improving and optimizing processes..., where it makes sense to do so. Borrowing from "Lean manufacturing" and "Six Sigma" techniques can help drive towards excellence.

Dear CEO, Congratulation! You have been promoted at the head of WEF.It is time to do some contribution to your valuable members-outside the ordinary newsletter. These are very intersting and a wealth of knowledge on pidped water, sanitation and water reservoirs around the world. May, I suggest you to carry on. Also, I know WEF is an accredited member of the UN (like the UN Human rights). My query is about participatin during the summer at the autoctone people conference in New york.I know that WEF is a member of this intergovernmental organization. I wonder if you would mind to give me some accreditation, on behalf of the company, so I can participate to the next meeting at United Nations headquaters in New York for the indiginous people human right- I am trying to work out the need of the people- My blog is: www.apfm.info/GSRADJOU or visit www.gsradjou.com Thanks for all. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely, GS RADJOU (General Manager, MBA, DUPEBH, Water/Fod Safety) www.gsradjou.com

Jeff Eger, WEF Executive Director

Prior to joining the Water Environment Federation as executive director in 2011, Jeff Eger served as executive director of Sanitation District 1 (SD1) in Kentucky since 1994. SD1 is the second largest public sewer utility in that state and maintains $1 billion in physical assets that include more than 1,600 miles of sanitary sewer line, 143 wastewater pumping stations, 15 flood pump stations, eight package treatment plants, two major wastewater treatment plants with a third under construction, more than 250 miles of storm sewer and more than 17,800 sewer structures. Career highlights of his tenure include supervision of the regionalization of 30 municipal sanitary sewer systems in response to pending Federal environmental regulations and legislative changes; responsibility for development and implementation of a regional storm water management program to comply with Federal regulations, and negotiating a unique watershed-based Consent Decree with state and federal officials that outlines a strategic 20-year plan for addressing sewer overflows in Northern Kentucky. He also initiated the design and construction of two new regional wastewater treatment plants and secured more than $80 million in low interest, state revolving loan funds to help finance the construction of these facilities, reducing costs to local rate payers.

Jeff is former chairman of the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission and has been active in numerous other professional and civic service endeavors such as the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, the Gateway Community and Technical College Foundation, the Bluegrass State Skills Commission, and the Kentucky Literacy Commission. He is Outstanding Alumnus of Northern Kentucky University (graduated 1994, Bachelor of Arts, Communications).
