Gateway Water Management AuthorityCiviltec has been selected to manage grant money for automatic water meter replacement throughout the agencies belonging to the Gateway Water Management Authority (GWMA). The meters are being upgraded to minimize water loss, improving water conservation in a drought-ridden area of California.

The Gateway Water Management Authority (“Los Angeles Gateway Region Integrated Regional Water Managment Joint Powers Authority”) is an agency made up of 25 cities and agencies within the Gateway region of Southeastern Los Angeles County, serving more than 2 million people. This group collaborates on regional projects and provides networking opportunities.

Shem Hawes and Greg Ripperger attended a recent GMWA Board Meeting, which had a majority of these cities and agencies in attendance. “Civiltec will provide multiple aspects of project management for this GWMA project,” said Project Manager Greg Ripperger. “We will be ensuring that Cities are all conforming to the grant requirements, facilitating project meetings, maintaining the grant reports and required documentation, and ensuring that the projects are all moving forward.”

In addition to Shem and Greg, Lindsey Ly will play a key role in this project, taking the lead on maintaining the documentation, writing reports, and coordinating the meetings. The project should officially kick off within the next few months and run for two to three years.
