Aquifer district names new general manager

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 by Tai Moses

Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conversation District has named Vanessa Escobar as its new general manager. She has a 15-year background “in water conservation, water resources planning, groundwater management, regulatory compliance, and project management,” according to a news release about the appointment. Escobar said, “When I joined the District almost seven years ago, I quickly developed an appreciation for the District’s reputable science and policy and for the challenges that this organization faces in the world of regulatory decision-making. The work we do as a District is centered within the nexus of science, policy and law; and our accountability to the public is what drives us to carefully weigh solutions and plan for the future.” Before joining the district in 2013, she spent six years as a program coordinator for the Innovative Water and Science Division of the Texas Water Development Board. Escobar added that as general manager, she hopes “to facilitate conversations and understanding of the science and regulatory policies so that we and the community can continue building a stable and sustainable water future for our aquifers.”
