Zone 7 Water Agency's four board members were sworn into office at the July Board of Directors meeting -- newly elected board member Jim McGrail and three incumbent board members John Greci, Sarah Palmer and Bill Stevens.
Greci, a retired Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory supervisor for groundwater cleanup and environmental quality issues, was elected by his colleagues as board president for the 2014-15 fiscal year.
Palmer, a Ph.D. biochemist, was named vice president.
In addition, the board commended AJ Machaevich, who served from 2010 to 2014, for his "invaluable contributions" to the agency in matters of improving budget transparency and fiscal management, as well as with watershed stewardship and planning for future capital project investments. Machaevich lost his re-election bid this June.
Zone 7 Water Agency provides water resources and flood control to the Livermore-Amador Valley, as well as selling treated water to Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and a part of San Ramon.
