MOLLY MACIEJEWSKI


Molly is the Public Works Manager for the City of Ann Arbor. Molly has worked for Ann Arbor since 2007 and has held a variety of positions, including Water Quality Manager and Water Treatment Plant Manager. Prior to her tenure in Ann Arbor, Molly spent 11 years working for EGLE (then MDEQ), where she worked as an analyst and supervisor in the drinking water and stormwater programs. Molly is a native of Washtenaw County, growing up on a small but water-rich piece of property that included a nice wetland and two creeks. In contrast, Molly’s grandmother lived on the banks of the Ohio River, where the impacts of runoff and lax regulations were apparent. Molly attributes her exposure to these very different watersheds to her passion for environmental stewardship and all things water.

Molly has a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and a master’s degree in Public Administration, both from the University of Michigan. She holds an F-1 and S-3 license and is a long-standing member of AWWA. Since 2014, she has served as Chair of the Government Affairs Council. Molly has a keen interest in workforce development and hopes to foster and support development of Public Works Academies and other apprenticeship programs to raise awareness about careers in the water sector and attract new workers to the field. Molly also hopes to continue to promote more collaboration between AWWA and other organizations with a shared interest in water issues because she believes those joint efforts add strength to our voice and have more influence and reach than we would otherwise have working independently. These types of partnerships also reflect Molly’s passion and desire to always approach water issues holistically.

Molly lives in Dexter, MI, with her husband Jason and their three children Quentin (21), Riley (14), and Paxton (12).
