As Vice President of the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) Wastewater Division, Joseph C. Pantalone oversees the 40 million gallon-per-day wastewater treatment plant in Atlantic City, NJ, and regional collection system that serves approximately 225,000 residents of Atlantic County.

Since joining ACUA in 2013, Pantalone has concentrated his leadership efforts on the improvement and sustainability of the wastewater treatment plant, collection system and its employees. He has implemented a revitalization plan to ensure the replacement of essential equipment and infrastructure as well as the general maintenance and organization of the facility, which is visited by thousands of travelers annually. He has also overseen the development of several resiliency projects that will protect the crucial facility during a flood or severe storm.

He has also undertaken the creation of an Operational Management Plan (OMP) that incorporates strategic planning, continuity planning and asset management to manage quality control of the entire operation. The program requires a yearly evaluation, review of standard operating procedures and goal-setting established with input of the entire staff.

With an eye to the future, Pantalone looks to further improve ACUA’s environmental impact by partnering with the local community in beneficial wastewater reuse projects and capturing the heat generated from biosolids incineration for electricity. Recently, the NJDEP has embraced the reuse concept and is working to provide funding for this effort. 

Pantalone previously served as the Public Engineering Department Head/Human Resources Director for more than 20 years at Adams, Rehmann and Heggan (ARH) Associates, a civil engineering and planning firm serving both municipal and county governments in Hammonton, NJ. In this position,  Pantalone was involved in numerous water and wastewater projects throughout South Jersey totaling more than $145 million dollars in infrastructure improvements.

Prior to joining Adams Rehmann and Heggan, Pantalone served as the Executive Director of the Hamilton Township Municipal Utilities Authority in Mays Landing, NJ, from 1981 through 1988.

Pantalone currently serves on the Association of Environmental Authorities (AEA) Legislative Committee, the Atlantic County Economic Advisory Committee and the Atlantic County Groundwater Advisory Committee. He has served on the Hammonton Chamber of Commerce for more than 20 years, including three years as its president, and is a recipient of the Chamber’s outstanding service to the community award. He is also a former member of Atlantic County’s Solid Waste Advisory Council. 

Pantalone is a graduate of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology/Sociology and a Master of Arts in Personnel Administration. He resides in Hammonton, NJ.
