Zone 7 Water Agency Director Dale Myers announced Friday that he is resigning. His last day will be Monday.
Myers, who was elected director last July, cited time constraints as the reason for his leaving the board of directors.
Before becoming director, Myers was general manager of the agency, which wholesales treated drinking water to Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin, from 1997-2007. In that role, he was prinicipally responsible for guiding Zone 7's acquisition of groundwater drought storage facilities in the Central Valley; purchasing state water entitlements, which nearly doubled long-term water supplies for Zone 7's customers; and initiating the early participation fo the agency in Bay Delta Conservation Plan negotiations, a plan focused on addressing ecosystem issues in the Bay Area and Sacramento Delta regions whil ealso increasing the reliability of future water supplies.
The vacant seat will be filled through an appointment that will be made by the board of directors. Just over three years are left on Myers' term.
