Post Date:01/08/2018 9:30 AM

Tom Schrempp, WaterOne’s Director of Production, was honored at his retirement celebration on Friday, January 5th for his 26 years of service.  The event was attended by many colleagues, utility professionals, and numerous engineers, consultants, and stakeholders he had worked closely with throughout his career.

Tom’s career was marked by substantial growth in WaterOne’s service area, with the District’s total water capacity doubling over the course of his leadership. During his career, Tom oversaw the construction of numerous facilities and expansions, including the award-winning Wolcott Treatment Plant which is the largest Pall Membrane treatment facility in the United States. Tom has been an active member of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) for 34 years, and has authored multiple papers, presented at state and national conferences, and served in leadership roles in the Kansas section of the AWWA. Tom also served on several project advisory committees for the Water Research Foundation.

In 2011, Tom received the George Fuller Award for his distinguished service, sound engineering skill, constructive leadership, and diplomatic talent. Tom was diligent in achieving the Director’s Award for the Partnership for Safe Drinking Water, which gained recognition for WaterOne’s commitment to superior water quality and improved treatment processes. Under Tom’s leadership, WaterOne was awarded the Best Tasting Water in Kansas award the most number of times of any water provider. Tom Schrempp closed his career with the groundbreaking of a state-of-the-art Ozone Water Treatment facility in December 2017, which is expected to be complete in 2020.

In his remarks, Tom thanked WaterOne’s Production Division for their efforts over the years.

“It’s a team that makes great water, and we take a lot of pride in what we do here at WaterOne,” Tom said. “Our District is in great hands going forward, and it’s everyone’s commitment which has made our operation such a success.”
