WASHINGTON — The Water Research Foundation recently named National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) Board Member Dennis W. Doll, chief executive officer of Middlesex Water Company, to a three-year term on its board of trustees beginning June 2010. With Doll’s election, Middlesex joins NAWC member Diane Kruger of Golden State Water Company on the governing body of the Foundation.

“Water utilities face complex challenges, and the Water Research Foundation provides an outstanding resource by conducting research to help meet and overcome those challenges,” Charles V. Firlotte, president and CEO of Aquarion Water and president of the NAWC board of directors. “Dennis’ engagement on the NAWC board has been extraordinary, and I’m confident that he and representatives of other NAWC member companies will contribute greatly to the good work of the Water Research Foundation as it continues to address the important issues of water conservation, the impacts of climate change on water resources, reduced energy consumption and many others.”

The Water Research Foundation is a member-supported, international, nonprofit organization that conducts research to better enable water utilities, public health agencies and other professionals to provide safe and affordable drinking water to consumers. Since its inception, the foundation has sponsored more than $460 million in research, completing more than 800 research projects.

“I’m thrilled that Dennis Doll will be joining the Water Research Foundation board. During his tenure, his knowledge of and experience in the private water industry will be extremely valuable for the organization and the future of water provision around the world,” said Robert C. Renner, executive director of the Water Research Foundation.

Doll has spent 25 years in the private water business, joining Middlesex Water as executive vice president in 2004 and assuming his current position in 2006. Previously, Doll worked for nearly 20 years with the Elizabethtown Water Company.
