Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District announced Thursday that it hired John Vega to be its new general manager.
Vega, who previously worked for the district as the director of operations, has 29 years of experience in the industry.
Vega also spent 10 years as the Cucamonga Valley Water District's director of operations and also served as the general manager for the Victor Valley Water District.
“John’s experience and leadership abilities are just what EVMWD is looking for,” EVMWD Board President Phil Williams said. “John’s past experience with EVMWD and his vast water and wastewater operational knowledge will help ensure the continued success of EVMWD.”
Vega said the District is "positioned, not only to grow in terms of its service area, but that will invest in its staff, so the organization can continue to provide reliable and cost effective water and wastewater service."
“As general manager, I will bring industry knowledge and managerial experience to promote team work, mentoring and support of the Districts goals to achieve the vision of the organization," he said.
EVMWD provides service to over 133,000 water, wastewater and agricultural customers in a 96-square mile service area in Western Riverside County. For more information, visit evmwd.com.
