New GM for water district

Posted on March 26, 2013 by Sonoma Valley Sun

The Valley of the Moon Water District has named Daniel Muelrath, Santa Rosa’s “water cop” since 2005, as its new general manager.

Muelrath will leave his post as Santa Rosa’s water resources sustainability manager to assume the Valley job, and $120,000 salary, on April 24. He replaces Krishna Kumar, who left the district in December to become general manager of the Marin Municipal Water District.

Mark Bramfitt, who after 12 years resigned from the VOMWD board to become the interim general manager after Kumar left, was one of the finalists for the permanent position.

According to Board President Ron Prushko, “the district received over 31
applicants for this position, all from well qualified professionals. (Muelrath’s) expertise and experience convinced us that he is the right.”
