The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC or District) congratulates Karl Seckel, P.E., on his well-deserved retirement after 37 years of dedicated and tireless service to the District. Seckel retires from his current position as Assistant General Manager and District Engineer, on December 4, 2020, and that’s just the beginning! Following a successful campaign this past November, he will now take his seat as MWDOC Director Division 4, serving the cities of Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, and Seal Beach. With over 40 years of professional water-related experience and expertise, Seckel plans to make use of his extensive knowledge and decades of service, working collectively with others to ensure a reliable water supply for the region in a cost-effective manner. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland in Civil Engineering with Bachelor and Master of Science degrees, and is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of California. MWDOC staff and Board of Directors congratulate Seckel on his new role, and look forward to working with him in this new capacity.
