Alan Roberson Joins Corona Environmental Consulting

March 29, 2016
Roberson worked for AWWA for 25 years

Corona Enviro­nmental Consulting, LLC announced that Alan Roberson, former director of federal relations of the American Water Works Assn. (AWWA), has joined the firm to increase national attention and efforts to bring solutions to the complex issues currently facing the water community. Roberson brings to Corona expertise as an engineer, scientist and regulatory professional, which he cultivated through years of developing and implementing federal regulations that both protect public health and avoid unintended consequences.

At Corona, Roberson will lead collaborations with a broad range of stakeholders in the water community. These include water utilities, public health agencies, environmental advocates, state regulatory agencies and federal agencies such as EPA, CDC, DHS, DOE and USGS. Roberson is based in the greater Washington, D.C. region and will be opening Corona’s first office there as well.

“We are thrilled that Alan is joining Corona and will continue to play a leadership role in the water community” said Jeffrey Rosen, Corona’s CEO. “With the growing national interest in water issues, having Alan lead our water quality and water policy efforts will greatly benefit the drinking water community.”

Roberson began his career as an engineer and project manager for several land development projects in Texas and Northern Virginia. But it was through his work over the last 25 years as the director of federal relations at AWWA where he made his mark as a visionary figure and agent of change in drinking water. In this role, he has been a catalyst for action, as his research and insight were instrumental in the development of changes in federal and state guidance on drinking water regulations, and how water utilities would manage their systems in the face of growing challenges posed by aging infrastructure, improved detection technology, uncertainties in the underlying science and much more.   

“I am excited to join Corona and to continue to bring the right people together in Washington for safe and affordable drinking water” said Roberson. He retired from AWWA in 2016, after 25 years of service. Since 2009, he has served on the Fairfax Water Board of Directors. He is also active with the Community Engineering Corps, providing engineering assistance to a small system in Virginia.
