About the event

A Pioneering Project Supporting Local, Sustainable Resources & the Economy: The Pure Water Southern California Program is a partnership between The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts. The program would create a new water supply to help meet the region’s needs by providing up to 150 million gallons of water daily or 155,000 acre-feet-year, enough for 1.5 million people. The water could replenish groundwater basins, be used by industries, and potentially be integrated into Metropolitan’s existing drinking water treatment and delivery system.

Heather is the Assistant Chief of Operations for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

She assists with leading a team responsible for the reliable delivery of high-quality imported water to southern California. This team includes over 950 employees responsible for operating and maintaining Metropolitan's Colorado River Aqueduct, treatment and distribution facilities; planning and scheduling water deliveries and power operations; and ensuring compliance with water quality, safety, and environmental regulations. Her team also provides in house manufacturing, construction, emergency response and maintenance engineering services. Heather is the lead on regulatory & permitting efforts for Metropolitan’s Pure Water Southern California, a planned 150-million gallon per day, water purification program to beneficially reuse water for groundwater recharge and potential raw water augmentation adding resiliency to Metropolitan’s water supply portfolio.

Heather is Registered Civil Engineer and licensed Water Treatment Operator, and currently serves as AWWA Association incoming President-Elect, Association Director, Past Vice-President and a member of the Water Utility Council.
