Recognising the importance of protecting assets from corrosion in water and wastewater systems, the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) has announced an agreement to collaborate to benefit their members and the wider public.
The cooperative agreement will “help to promulgate knowledge and technologies that protect people, assets and the environment from the effects of corrosion.” It opens the door for cooperation on events and webinars, technical information exchange and research, and the possibility of collaboration in countries outside of the United States and Canada, particularly India.
“Every good water utility manager understands that protecting pipes and other assets is critical to maintaining strong, healthy water systems,” said AWWA CEO David LaFrance. “AWWA looks for-ward to tapping into the experience and expertise of AMPP through this new collaboration.”
AMPP Board Chair Amir Eliezer continued, “On behalf of AMPP’s global members and leadership, I extend our appreciation as we embark on this mutually beneficial relationship with AW-WA. Expanding our international reach allows us to share corrosion-related knowledge and cutting-edge technologies with regions facing distinct challenges and needs with water systems, so establish-ing partnerships like this fosters progress and ensures success in the industry.”
