Sponsored by

NEWARK, DE, Nov. 15, 2010 -- Artesian Resources Corporation announced today that Bruce Kraeuter, Senior Vice President of Planning and Engineering, was appointed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Water Sector Coordinating Council (WSCC), one of ten sector councils that address the safety of the nation's critical infrastructure.

The WSCC is made up of the most capable experts in water security, quality, management, engineering, operations, and maintenance disciplines. The Council was established in September 2004 by the federal Homeland Security Act to serve as a policy, strategy and coordination mechanism and recommend action to reduce and eliminate significant homeland security vulnerabilities to the water sector through interactions with the Federal Government and other critical infrastructure sectors.

Kraeuter was asked to serve on the WSCC by the Water Research Foundation (WRF), where he serves on the Board of Trustees, one of the several water and wastewater umbrella organizations that have a seat on the Council. He will be one of only two WRF members with the ability to vote.

"I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Water Sector Coordinating Council," Kraeuter said. "Actively participating in the improvement of the security of the water sector that provides clean and safe water as an integral part of daily life is very important to me, and I feel that I have a great deal to contribute to this group."

Kraeuter has been an active member of the Delaware natural resources community since he began his career in 1972 as a Resources Engineer with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). He later joined Artesian in July 1989 as an Engineer and was promoted to Senior Vice President of Planning and Engineering in 2007. Mr. Kraeuter has a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Kentucky.
