Hockemeyer hired as new Ludington water plant supervisor.

LUDINGTON — Jamie Hockemeyer has been hired as the new superintendent of the City of Ludington Water Plant. Hockemeyer most recently has worked for the City of Mt. Pleasant’s water plant; prior to that he worked for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (now Environment, Great Lakes and Energy) and the City of Ludington. He succeeds Kurt Malzahn who died as a result of an accident at the water tank facility in Amber Township in November 2019.

City Manager Mitch Foster said three candidates applied for the position.

“Jamie is filling a really big void left by Kurt when he passed,” Foster said. “He has experience with our plant and I believe he is a good fit for the city and for the staff at the plant. His experience, in particular, working for the DEQ during the Flint water crisis will be invaluable to us as we implement lead and copper rules.

Hockemeyer has a bachelor’s degree in biology and along with certifications from the Michigan EGLE.
