The International Board of Directors of the International Ozone Association (IOA) elected Dr. Saad Y. Jasim as the President-Elect for the International Ozone Association, starting January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2019. On January 1, 2020, Dr. Jasim will begin his term as President of the International Ozone Association.

Dr. Jasim is the manager of utilities at the City of White Rock and oversees day-to-day water operations and the large-scale infrastructure and research projects associated with White Rock’s Total Water Quality Management Plan. He has led the city’s research on secondary disinfection and treatment processes for the reduction of naturally occurring arsenic and manganese in White Rock water.

Since joining the City of White Rock in 2016, Dr. Jasim has overseen many water-related milestones for the White Rock, such as the completion of the Merklin Reservoir and Pumping Station. Dr. Jasim also spearheaded studies with RES’EAU WaterNET, which are focused on identifying the best technologies that will provide a significant reduction of arsenic and manganese to provide quality water.

Dr. Jasim is the first Canadian to be elected president of the International Ozone Association.

The IOA was formed in 1973, a nonprofit, educational, and scientific organization dedicated to the collection and dissemination of information on, and promotion of research in, any and all aspects of ozone and related oxygen species technologies. The organization’s work includes programs that investigate the mass transfer of ozone in water and wastewater and drinking water treatment for disinfection and for oxidation of pollutants.
