Dupnik moves on
Friday, January 26, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
John Dupnik is leaving his position as the general manager of the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District. Dupnik has held that position since 2013 and, prior to that, was a regulatory compliance team leader for the district. He announced his resignation to move on to a new position at the Texas Water Development Board as the deputy executive administrator of the Water Science and Conservation Division. The conservation district reported on the resignation, and quoted Dupnik, who said, “My years and experience with the District have been formative and professionally rewarding in every way. The District maintains a reputation as one of the model groundwater conservation districts in the state and I’m proud to have played my small part in its success. I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the Board for their support and guidance and to the staff for their passion and professionalism. Together we’ve earned the trust of our community and accomplished so much. This next chapter in my career is a great opportunity to apply what I’ve learned at the District to address the formidable future water challenges we face in our state. I very much look forward to continuing to work with the District in this new capacity.” The district board is now in the process of managing the transition, with a job posting expected soon.
