Water district director takes new role
Greg Zlotnick is joining the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) staff and will serve as Special Counsel to the CEO for Strategic Planning and Initiatives, after more than a decade of service on the Board.
"I am very excited about becoming part of the District's excellent staff and continuing to work on the community's behalf. The water management challenges confronting California are daunting and I look forward to working fulltime to contribute to their resolution," said Zlotnick.
Zlotnick, who is Vice-Chairman of the Board, is resigning his seat effective July 10, 2007. The search for his replacement begins immediately. The Board plans to appoint a new director before Aug. 9, 2007.
Zlotnick's resignation comes on the heels of the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) decision to shut down the water pumps in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Although the pumps are currently running again at reduced rate, the scientific evidence shows the Delta's ecosystem is badly damaged.
"Greg brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience. He has a comprehensive understanding of the state's water system and the District will benefit from his years of working in different capacities," said water district CEO Stan Williams.
