At the beginning of December, Triunfo Water & Sanitation District board member Leon Shapiro was appointed to the Ventura Regional Sanitation District board of directors for a one-year term.
Shapiro has served on the TWSD board since he was appointed in 2018 and elected in 2020. He has worked in the water and wastewater treatment industry for over 20 years. He is currently president of 21st Century Water Solutions, a consulting firm focusing on California’s water supply and wastewater treatment issues. An Oak Park resident since 2010, he has been active with the Sierra Club, where he is a former co-chair of the California committee promoting water conservation and reuse.
“The Ventura Regional Sanitation District is an important resource within Ventura County, providing vital solid waste, water, and wastewater services throughout the County,” says Shapiro. “As with many parts of California, the residents of Ventura County face significant issues relating to the continued availability of water and the sustainable use and treatment of this precious resource. I look forward to bringing my experience to the VRSD board and assisting in its efforts to maintain a superior level of services for its customers.”
The Ventura Regional Sanitation District board comprises representatives from eight Ventura County cities and a representative from one of five special districts in the county that receive water and wastewater services from Ventura Regional Water District. Shapiro will represent the special districts during his one-year term.
