“Dirk is the reason that the Santa Clarita Valley has been able to weather dry years. As a Water Resource Engineer, Dirk has been instrumental in developing water purchases and storage programs that have provided reliability in our water supply. He is a true visionary and the community needs his continued expertise and knowledge on the SCV Water Board.”
SCV Water Board Director
"Dirk Marks will make an outstanding member of the Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency Board of Directors.
For the last 35 years of Mr. Marks’ professional career, he has dedicated himself to becoming what he is today; one of the most knowledgeable and accomplished water resource planning experts in the state of California. The Santa Clarita community has been the beneficiary of his efforts, as he has been the primary architect of the present SCV Water diversified water supply portfolio. This has never been more important than today as we have faced in recent years a historic and prolonged drought. With the development of a multitude of “dry year” supplemental water supply sources under Dirk’s leadership, SCV Water has been able to continue meeting all water supply demands for our customers, even in the face of this severe seasonal water shortage.
I am excited beyond words at the prospect of working with Dirk on our board to continue serving our community, and I offer my full vote of confidence and endorsement of his candidacy for the Division 2 seat on the SCV Water Agency Board of Directors! Please vote for Dirk Marks this November!"
