Daigger, who is recognized worldwide as an expert in wastewater treatment technologies, officially took office for a two-year term as President during the closing IWA Gala Dinner in the Palais de Congres de Montreal.

?I am deeply honored to become the President of the International Water Association,? says Daigger. ?While we have collectively accomplished much in the past several years, numerous challenges and opportunities lie ahead.
