Moulton Niguel Water District Elects 2017 Board Officers

Donald L. Froelich re-named President; Scott F. Colton and Brian S. Probolsky continue their positions as District Vice Presidents

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. – Jan. 20, 2017 – At the Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) Board of Directors meeting in January, the MNWD Board re-elected Division 3 Director Donald L. Froelich as its Board President, and re-elected Scott F. Colton, Division 2, and Brian S. Probolsky, Division 5, as its Vice Presidents. The new leadership comes on the heels of affirming oaths for four MNWD Board Members in December 2016. Directors Richard S. Fiore, Division 1, Brian S. Probolsky, Division 5, Duane D. Cave, Division 6, and Gary R. Kurtz, Division 7, retained their seats on the board and have begun to serve their term.

MNWD’s seven-member Board of Directors are publicly elected by registered voters within the MNWD service area and serve for staggered four-year terms. They are responsible for setting policies to ensure the District provides a safe and reliable supply of water to its communities.

“I’m honored to serve once again as the District’s Board President,” said Director Froelich, who served as President for the past two years, and begins his new two-year term. “As water challenges continue in Southern California, we must find new, innovative ways to provide water reliability for our customers. I look forward to working with our communities and all our stakeholders to uphold this commitment.”

Understanding that drought-like conditions are the “new normal” for California, the MNWD Board of Directors remain committed to ensuring water reliability for its customers today and for generations to come. This encompasses a variety of initiatives including making water conservation a California way of life by providing water efficiency programs and resources, continuing to be engaged with its communities, investing in local and regional water supply projects, expanding MNWD’s water recycling program, and maximizing MNWD’s ability to manage water demands to prepare for future dry periods and water challenges.
