He is the current Past-President of the chapter, previously serving as Secretary in 2012 and as Vice President and President in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
The Young Leader Award is given to recognize and encourage young APWA members who have demonstrated an initial commitment to the profession and the association, and show potential for future growth within the association. The award promotes the concept that length of career does not necessarily indicate leadership abilities or potential for service.
Mr. Matyja has 13 years of experience in the water and wastewater industry with a focus on sewer collection systems. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois and a Master of Science degree in Management from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. He is a licensed professional engineer in Illinois, Colorado, Nebraska, and Indiana.
At RJN, Zach has managed a number of large and small sewer system projects including both field inspection services (such as flow monitoring, dyed water flooding, and smoke testing) as well as engineering studies related to the rehabilitation or new design of sewer conveyance and storage systems.
