Natural Systems Utilities has announced the successful completion of the acquisition of Applied Water Management from AWM’s parent company American Water. Applied Water Management, based in Hillsborough, NJ, has 77 employees and has offices in NJ, PA, and MA. NSU will assume all AWM contracts and business operations.
Combined, the Company provides design, build, operations and engineering services to over 150 systems in NJ, NY, PA, CT, MA, RI, and MN. The Company will be known as Natural Systems Utilities and will operate under both the NSU and AWM names.

AWM’s clients will benefit from NSU’s expertise and innovations in operations, management and advanced wastewater systems and related technologies.”
Dominic Kulik, Chairman of NSU said, “NSU has a proud history of providing environmentally friendly water resource management services to a range of municipal, commercial, residential, institutional and industrial customers across America. The deep pool of talent and sector expertise of the AWM professionals will allow NSU to expand our services to a market with rapidly increasing needs for improved water management services. Our unique design-build-operate-finance model provides innovative water and wastewater solutions more quickly and at lower life cycle costs.”
