The George Warren Fuller Award is presented each year by AWWA to a
member who has been selected by the Pennsylvania section for
"distinguished service in the water supply field and in commemoration of
the sound engineering skill, the brilliant diplomatic talent, and the
constructive leadership of men and women in the association, which
characterized the life of George Warren Fuller," one of America's most
eminent engineers.

Aqua America Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Rick
Fox said, "This award is well-deserved, and we are all very proud of
Chris and his accomplishments and contributions to the water industry.
Chris is an extraordinarily talented engineer whose passion and
commitment have made him one of the best in the industry, and we are
fortunate to have him on our team."

Crockett, who did not know about the award until it was presented, said,
"I am very honored to receive the George Fuller award and hope to uphold
the spirit of the award through the integrity, respect, and excellence
we strive for every day at Aqua. I also want to thank my colleagues and
mentors at Aqua for helping me achieve this honor."

Crockett joined Aqua America as its chief environmental officer in June
2016 and was previously deputy commissioner for planning and
environmental services at the Philadelphia Water Department, where he
worked since 1995. He has more than 20 years of experience in the water,
storm water and wastewater industry and has participated in and led
several innovative projects, including many that improve the environment
and have a positive impact on water quality and operations performance.

Crockett, a licensed professional engineer in Pennsylvania, is a Drexel
University alumnus who earned his Bachelor of Science in civil
engineering, and his Master of Science and doctorate in environmental
engineering from the university, where he also served as an adjunct
professor.

Crockett has been involved in a variety of industry organization
committees and has reviewed and published journal articles. He is a
regular resource for news media looking to understand drinking water and
environmental issues. Crockett is currently appointed to the
Pennsylvania lead task force and is a board member of the Perkiomen
Watershed Conservancy and the Water Resources Association of the
Delaware River Basin.
