George S. Logan, Director of Engineering & Water Resource Planning for Aquarion Water Company was recently honored at the Associated General Contractors of Connecticut (AGC) Industry Awards Event held in Plantsville, Connecticut.

Logan’s contributions to the Connecticut construction industry were recognized by a panel of judges as he was named Private Owner of the Year from the Associated General Contractors of Connecticut, the building division of the Connecticut Construction Industry Association.

“George’s leadership on construction projects is noteworthy not only to Aquarion, but to our entire industry,” said Aquarion President and CEO Charles V. Firlotte. “He has provided more than twenty years of effective leadership in water utility engineering and construction, all of which have contributed to delivering safe, clean water to our customers. I could not think of a more deserving winner of the AGC Industry Award and I join with the Connecticut Construction Industry Association in congratulating him for his achievement.”

Logan began his career at Aquarion in 1992 as a Junior Engineer and worked his way up to his current role as the department Director.

Among his responsibilities are pipeline design and construction, treatment and pumping facility design and construction, water supply planning, permitting, distribution system analysis and water quality treatment.
