FALLBROOK – The Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) General Manager, Jake Willey, has been appointed to represent RMWD on the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) Board of Directors. Wiley is assigned to serve on the Water Authority Administrative and Finance, and Engineering and Operations committees.
Wiley's appointment stems from the retirement of former General Manager Tom Kennedy, who served as the district's representative on the Water Authority Board for nine years during his tenure with the district. Kennedy, who retired from the Rainbow Municipal Water District in October, made significant contributions to the district and the Water Authority throughout his career. His extensive experience and dedication to the water industry have left an indelible mark on the organization and the region.
Wiley brings over 20 years of experience in water operational and technical expertise to fill the position vacated by Kennedy. Wiley joined RMWD in September after serving as Assistant General Manager of Engineering and Operations at Rancho California Water District in Temecula.
The SDCWA comprises 24 member agencies, with one director from each agency represented on the 36-member board. As the district's representative on the SDCWA Board of Directors, Wiley will continue to ensure that the district's interests are well represented in the regional water community. His expertise will be instrumental in advancing the goals of the district and fostering collaboration with other agencies to address the community's water needs.
