The Dublin San Ramon Services District has brought Carol Atwood on as its new administrative services manager.
Atwood began her new job Monday. As DSRSD's administrative services manager, Atwood will oversee 24.5 positions in accounting, customer service, information services and human resources for the agency that provides water and sewer service to parts of San Ramon, as well as services to Dublin and Pleasanton.
Most recently, Atwood served 19 years with the city of Cupertino heading up its human resources, finance and information technology divisions and the city clerk's office. Atwood has 32 years of municipal financial experience and three years' experience working for KPMG in its government audit section.
"I'm very impressed with Carol's financial management experience in both the private and public sectors," DSRSD general manager Daniel McIntyre said in a statement. "She's been doing the job of an administrative services manager for 19 years. I feel very fortunate to have her join our team."
Atwood is replacing John Archer, who will retire later this fiscal year. She is from the Tri-Valley and attended Livermore High School.
In other DSRSD news, the agency recently announced an opportunity for Tri-Valley residents to take a behind-the-scenes tour of its resource recovery facility. The facility, located on Johnson Drive in Pleasanton, cleans 10 million gallons of wastewater a day and produces a billion gallons of recycled water every year.
The free 90-minute tour starts at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 12 and is suitable for adults, teens and children ages 10 and up. Reservations are required. For more information, visit DSRSD online or call 875-4565.
