After six (6) years of service, Larry McKenney has retired from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) Board of Directors. He leaves the Metropolitan Board after recently taking the position as General Manager of Amador Water Agency. Since 2014, Director McKenney served as one of the Municipal Water District of Orange County’s (MWDOC) four (4) appointees to the Metropolitan Board. “I appreciate the trust and confidence of the MWDOC board in appointing me, and the diligence of the MWDOC staff in supporting my efforts,” said McKenney. “Representing MWDOC at Metropolitan has been a highlight of my water career.” Director McKenney is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Texas School of Law, and served as an artillery officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. His career in water began as an attorney for the U.S. Marine Corps in the early 1990s, followed by public and private sector experience in management, legal, regulatory, advocacy, and environmental responsibilities at several Southern California water resources entities. He has also addressed statewide water issues for the last decade on the board of the Association of California Water Agencies. MWDOC staff and Board of Directors thank Director McKenney for his years of dedicated service and wish him well in his new role.
