Michael most recently served as Business Administrator for the City of York where he oversaw the fiscal and administrative functions of the City and was recognized for improving the City’s credit rating during his tenure. He will oversee Capital Region Water’s administrative functions including Human Resources, Risk Management, and Business Diversity.

 

“It’s part of Capital Region Water’s mission to continually improve the performance, efficiency, and safety of our operations,” said Capital Region Water Board Chairperson Marc Kurowski. “Michael brings over 15 years of leadership experience to support this mission and lead our administrative efforts.”

He oversees the operation of Capital Region Water’s wastewater system serving 120,000 people in the Harrisburg area, including the largest wastewater treatment plant in Pennsylvania within the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

 

In addition, Michael McFadden has been promoted to Director of Water Operations after serving as Water Superintendent for three years.
