State Water Resources Control Board Announces New Executive Director

August 13, 2017

SACRAMENTO — After a lengthy, competitive, and deliberative process, the State Water Resources Control Board has named Eileen Sobeck as its next Executive Director. She replaces Tom Howard, who retired in May 2017. After reviewing a wealth of qualified applicants, the State Water Board selected Sobeck due to her substantial managerial and environmental experience. She has nearly 40 years of government service, and more than a decade of executive and management experience leading professional staff in complex organizations. Sobeck will be new to state government, but has spent her career in federal agencies that touch on many of the same science-based, public resource challenges the State Water Board faces. Most recently she headed the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries as the Assistant Administrator at the Department of Commerce (2014-2017)…. Sobeck will join the State Water Board following the Labor Day holiday weekend.
