TUD Chair Balen Elected MCWRA President

February 4, 2018

Sonora, CA — A Mother Lode leader involved for years at the heart of local and regional water resource issues has won a two-year term heading up one of the state’s key water rights groups.

Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) Director and 2018 Board Chair Barbara Balen is the newly elected President of the Mountain Counties Water Resources Association (MCWRA) Board of Directors. The organization’s stated mission is to unite agencies, groups and individuals whose interests include protecting and enhancing Mountain County water resources throughout the foreseeable future. Balen, a Forest Service retiree who has served on the TUD board since 2003, taking a four-year break before running and reclaiming her seat in the last election, has been affiliated for nearly that amount of time with “Mountain Counties,” as she says the entity is affectionately called. In related news, Tuolumne County Supervisor Randy Hanvelt is newly appointed to the MCWRA Governance Committee.
