Kentucky American Water has announced that Justin Sensabaugh will be taking a new role as operations superintendent for the utility’s Northern Division. In this role, Sensabaugh will oversee the company’s water and wastewater operations in Gallatin, Grant and Owen counties, with his office based in Owenton.
Sensabaugh is a five-year employee of Kentucky American Water, beginning as a utility operator in 2008, moving quickly to operations specialist and then to operations supervisor. In 2010, he was named production supervisor for Richmond Road Station, and recently has also been serving in an interim role as field operations supervisor. Sensabaugh holds industry certifications in water treatment and distribution (class IV), wastewater and collections (class I), and is licensed in backflow prevention.
Sensabaugh, a native of London, started his career in the water industry in 1998 with Laurel County Water District #2. While there, he was also active with the Laurel County volunteer fire and rescue department, receiving training in those areas in addition to hazardous materials and substances.
“Justin has been a valuable member of the Kentucky American Water team for some time, and I am confident he will excel in this new role,” said Keith Cartier, vice president of operations. “Justin’s extensive exposure to various aspects of water utility management, his industry relationships, and his direct knowledge and expertise with our system made him the ideal candidate for this position.”
“I am looking forward to working with the northern division team, citizens and community leaders, and maintaining the high standards of safety and performance both we and our customers expect,” stated Sensabaugh.
