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 Committee.

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. 

Amy 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.

In 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.
