2:00 - Sharing 10 - Featuring Amy Talbot
Amy Talbot - Regional Water Authority - Sacramento
I’ve been working in the
planning and water supply field for almost 10 years and continue to love
it. What a journey it has been! I started off doing data entry for
a land use development database and now manage a regional water efficiency
program for 20 water provider in the Sacramento region. One of my
favorite roles along the way has been as chair of the ISAWWA Water Efficiency
My time volunteering at ISAWWA is one of the things I miss
most about moving to CA. It has also provided me with invaluable
leadership experience. While it has been a challenge to reestablish my career
after moving across the country, what helped me the most was focusing on
building relationships. Once you have the technical part down, it’s all
about people. Join me during this conference call for an informal conversation about my journey.
Talbot attended The University of Texas at Austin and received a Bachelors
Degree in Urban Studies from the Department of Geography and the
Environment. Ms. Talbot worked for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for
Planning (CMAP) for 7 years where she focused on water and energy savings potential
from water-use conservation best management practices. Her work was incorporated into Water 2050:
Northeastern Illinois Regional Water Supply/Demand Plan, the result of an
11-county regional water supply planning process. Amy also served as the Committee Chair for
the Illinois Section American Water Works Association’s Water Efficiency
Committee from 2010-2012.
November 2012, Ms. Talbot joined the Regional Water Authority (RWA), a coalition of more than 20 water
purveyors and associated agencies in the greater Sacramento Region. RWA’s mission is to represent regional water
supply interests and to assist members in protecting and enhancing the
reliability, availability, affordability, and quality of water resources. At RWA, Amy is the
manager of the Regional Water Efficiency Program’s award winning public
outreach campaign and school education program.
She also oversees several grants that collectively provide $1 million to
increase water use efficiency in the region.
