Salary open DOQ. The San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District (Valley District) was formed to find and deliver water to supplement the local surface water and groundwater supplies in the most densely populated areas of San Bernardino County. The 325 square-mile Valley District service area spans the eastern two-thirds of the San Bernardino Valley, an area with a population approaching 700,000. Valley District is the fifth largest of the 29 State Water Contractors who work with the California Department of Water Resources to reliably manage the State Water Project (SWP), which serves 27 million Californians and 750,000 acres of agriculture. The District’s primary water source is from the SWP. Valley District is a wholesale water agency with 13 customers (retail water agencies) serving eleven cities and communities. These water agencies collectively depend on Valley District to provide them with roughly 25% of the region’s water needs for their business and residential customers. The FY2019-20 General Fund and State Water Project combined budget is almost $166 million and there are 26 authorized staff positions.

Valley District has a number of significant projects and programs underway or about to start, including: 1) the Upper Santa Ana River Habitat Conservation Plan, with the District serving as the lead on behalf of 13 signatory agencies; 2) the Sites Reservoir Project, which has been anticipated for more than 50 years and is an off-stream reservoir with 1.3 to 1.8 million acre-feet of storage capacity that would be filled from diversion off the Sacramento River; and 3) the Enhanced Recharge Project on the Santa Ana River, designed to capture and use Santa Ana River water diverted by Valley District and Western Municipal Water District under two Water Rights Permits; among others.

This is an at-will position reporting to the five-member Board of Directors (who are elected by Division for four-year overlapping terms). Desire a relevant bachelor’s degree; an advanced degree would be a plus. Requires significant and relevant senior level management experience in the water industry, including successful management of projects of the size and/or complexity of those being undertaken by Valley District. Familiarity with the California water industry and water law would be valuable. Must have demonstrated experience dealing with policy makers and regulatory agencies.
