Aquifer district names new general manager

The Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District is pleased to announce Vanessa Escobar has been named General Manager.

As a water resource professional in Texas, she has focused her work over the last 15 years in water conservation, water resources planning, groundwater management, regulatory compliance, and project management.

“When I joined the District almost 7 years ago, I quickly developed an appreciation for the District’s reputable science and policy and for the challenges that this organization faces in the world of regulatory decision-making. The work we do as a District is centered within the nexus of science, policy and law; and our accountability to the public is what drives us to carefully weigh solutions and plan for the future,” said Vanessa Escobar.

Ms. Escobar has served as the Senior Regulatory Compliance Coordinator implementing the District’s groundwater permitting program, conservation initiatives, drought compliance efforts, and management policies.
