The National Association of Water Companies has named American Water CEO Don Correll as presdent of the trade association's board. His one-year term began Oct. 21.

"I look forward to furthering NAWC's mission of promoting the value of the private sector as the provider of quality, sustainable, water services and innovative solutions," said Correll in a news release. "Partnerships between municipalities and the private sector are an increasingly important strategy for dealing with the nation's water infrastructure challenges and the NAWC maintains an aggressive set of programs to support the private water service industry and their customers."

The National Association of Water Companies promotes private industry's role in providing water services. American Water is the largest investor-owned U.S. water and wastewater utility company. Founded in 1886, and headquartered in Voorhees, N.J., it employs more than 7,000 workers and provides drinking water, wastewater and other related services to approximately 15 million people in 32 states and Ontario, Canada.

Prior to joining American Water in 2006, Correll served as president and CEO of Pennichuck Corp., a New Hampshire-based water utility holding company. Correll also spent 25 years with United Water Resources, a leading investor-owned water services company, where he served as chairman, president and CEO.
