Dan Duchniak Awarded Advocate of the Year
Waukesha Business Alliance awarded Dan Duchniak, General Manager of Waukesha Water Utility, the Advocate of the Year. This award “celebrates an individual who has demonstrated incredible dedication to making Waukesha County a vibrant and wonderful place to work, play, and live.”

“Waukesha will be the first community allowed to borrow Great Lakes water under the Compact’s exception for communities that are outside the basin but within a county that straddles the Great Lakes Basin divide,” said Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly. “Dan was responsible for overseeing the years of study of our issue and developing our application. He was a key advocate for Waukesha throughout the lengthy regulatory and approval process.”
