AWWA president Terry Rolan said his organization is interested in continuing discussion on a possible future alliance. "While the AWWA board felt a WEF proposal to advance toward a single water organization was premature, AWWA believes this continuing conversation will serve both organizations well and may illuminate unseen opportunities where they exist."
"WEF strongly believes that ensuring one strong voice for water would better serve our members and our communities by strengthening clean water initiatives in protecting public health and the environment," said Mohamed Dahab, WEF president. "We are disappointed we have lost this opportunity with AWWA for now, but the federation remains committed to moving forward to partner with water organizations in and outside North America to achieve this vision."
