Westerville, OH – A former National Ground Water Association president will be designated a NGWA Fellow in recognition of his outstanding credentials and professional accomplishments at Ground Water Week Dec. 6-8 in Las Vegas.

Roger E. Renner, MGWC, is among the first five to receive the new Fellow designation in recognition of outstanding credentials, professional accomplishments, and commitment to promoting the increased understanding of ground water science and water well system technology.

Renner is president and CEO of E.H. Renner & Sons Inc. in Elk River, Minn. Among his many ground water industry achievements are:
