VOORHEES, N.J. (Business Wire) -- American Water (NYSE: AWK), the nation's largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company, today announced Dr. Mark LeChevallier, Director of Innovation and Environmental Stewardship, will give a keynote presentation during the 17th Annual Water Reuse & Desalination Research Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. on May 6-7.

LeChevallier's presentation will provide an overview of the WateReuse Research Foundation Research process, including changes to the Research Advisory Committee and the Tailored Collaboration Program.

Additionally, Lauren Weinrich, a senior research analyst at American Water, will give a presentation about treatment effects and reverse osmosis membranes that are used to produce drinking water from seawater.
