Salary open DOQ. The San Gorgonio Pass is the narrow east-west strip of land between the San Bernardino Valley to the west and the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area to the east, with mountains on both the north and south. The region is transitioning from primarily rural to urban land uses, and is among the fastest growing areas in Southern California due to its relatively inexpensive home prices.

The San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency is one of 29 State Water Contractors, importing water from Northern California through the State Water Project (California aqueduct). The Agency’s service area covers about 225 square miles in Riverside County, and includes the incorporated cities of Calimesa, Beaumont and Banning, and the communities of Cherry Valley, Cabazon and Banning Bench. The population is 100,000 and growing rapidly. Currently, the Agency sells water to three retail service providers – Beaumont Cherry Valley Water District, Yucaipa Valley Water District, and the City of Banning.

The FY 2019/20 general fund budget is under $10 million and debt service is about $27 million. The Agency currently has five employees.

Desire a relevant bachelor’ degree and at least five years of senior level water industry management experience. California experience is important. Some Board Members believe that registration as a Professional Civil Engineer in California would be a plus, but it is not required. Must have or be able to establish good relations with the Department of Water Resources. Should have extensive knowledge of the State Water Project, as well as a working understanding of: Delta Conveyance; the Sites Project; and water transfers, exchanges and sales.
