Middlesex Water

Business Development Team

The value we bring to your project is that we are one enterprise offering many solutions. That means our integrated end-to-end approach can help you maximize the value of your water and your wastewater systems. If you are a municipality seeking to maintain a balanced budget by selling water system assets, a private system owner seeking operations and maintenance (O & M) support to enhance service and meet compliance standards or a developer seeking technical assistance in building a much needed wastewater treatment plant, we encourage you to talk to our team. We've worked with local government, the military, commercial entities and residential communities to ensure quality service that meets their unique needs.

We've been in this business for over a century and during that time, have acquired the system knowledge, engineering expertise and project management skills to deliver a customized and sustainable solution that can come in the form of an O&M contract, public private partnership, acquisition, and/or a full service agreement.

Let us help with your business needs!
