The North Shore Water Reclamation District (NSWRD) Board of Trustees recently named Dave Miller to the position of Executive Director.  Miller was chosen to fill the position when Brian Dorn announced his retirement. 

“It’s both a great honor and a great responsibility to lead the second largest water reclamation district in Illinois,” stated Miller.  “I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with the Board of Trustees and staff to build upon the District’s reputation as a respected, environmental leader in wastewater treatment and resource recovery.” 

Miller joined the NSWRD in 1995.  Most recently he held the position of Deputy Executive Director and Deputy Treasurer.  “We are very fortunate to have Dave Miller move seamlessly into the position of Executive Director,” stated Preston Carter, President of the Board of Trustees.  “He has been an outstanding member of our staff who is familiar with our operations.  We are confident that Dave will continue the tradition of excellence that has become synonymous with the NSWRD.”

The North Shore Water Reclamation District is a municipal body dedicated to the beneficial reuse of our water resources while protecting Lake Michigan, local waterways, and the environment through sustainable and fiscally responsible wastewater reclamation practices at our facilities.  The NSWRD owns and operates 3 major Water Reclamation Facilities (WRF) located in Gurnee, Waukegan, and Highland Park, Illinois, and more than 100 miles of intercepting sewer lines and 10 pumping stations which collect and convey wastewater from local sewer systems to the WRFs.   Additional NSWRD facilities include the Biosolids Recycling Facility in Zion, the Administration Building and Laboratory in Gurnee, and the Maintenance Building in Waukegan. The NSWRD is governed by an elected Board of Trustees vested with full powers to tax and enact all necessary rules within District boundaries that are the Wisconsin border on the north, Lake-Cook Road on the south, Lake Michigan on the east, and the I-94 toll road on the west.   For more information about the NSWRD please visit .
