Vallecitos Water District Appoints New General Manager
The Vallecitos Water District (VWD) has named Glenn Pruim as its new general manager. He replaces Dennis O. Lamb, who retired last June. “We are excited to have Glenn join us,” said VWD Board President Mike Sannella. “After a nationwide search we selected the ideal candidate: a general manager with skills in drinking water, desalinated water, recycled water, and wastewater collection – and also one who knows and understands California’s water woes as well as the local North County community.”
Glenn received both his bachelors and Masters of Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois. A registered engineer in civil and mechanical engineering, he has an extensive background in public works, engineering, and water and wastewater operations. During his 10 years at the City of Carlsbad, he served as city engineer, public works director, and general manager/utilities director of the City’s subsidiary, Carlsbad Municipal Water District. He also functioned as lead negotiator with Poseidon Resources and the San Diego County Water Authority for the Carlsbad Desalination Project. More recently, Glenn worked for the City of Encinitas and San Dieguito Water District as public works director/general manager.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to join Vallecitos as the general manager,” Glenn said. “In my previous positions with Carlsbad and Encinitas, I have worked side by side with Vallecitos on water and wastewater issues and have always been impressed by their leadership and professionalism. I’ve also been a Vallecitos customer for the past 14 years and have received excellent service.” Learn more at www.vwd.org.
