The City of Indio has announced that Indio Water Authority (IWA) Interim General Manager Reymundo Trejo, P.E., has been appointed as the agency’s new general manager.
Trejo joined IWA as assistant general manager in January 2020 and was named interim general manager in October 2021, following the retirement of the previous general manager. The agency serves approximately 24,000 residential and commercial customers.
“I’m excited to continue my journey with this team of talented professionals, where I will apply my more than 25 years of water industry experience and ensure a safe and sustainable water resources portfolio to support the growth of the City of Indio,” said Trejo.
Trejo’s expanded capacity includes leading the development of a multi-million-dollar chromium-6 treatment program, managing infrastructure rehabilitation, water treatment, and stewarding the agency’s commitment to responsible water usage in a time of sustained statewide drought. Trejo’s bilingual skills also serve the community during outreach engagements, including public messaging and radio appearances on the “La Poderosa” Spanish radio show.
In addition to his role as General Manager, Trejo will serve as the city’s representative on the Imperial Irrigation District’s Energy Consumers Advisory Committee (ECAC), addressing the growing power/energy requirements of the Coachella Valley. Trejo also serves on the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for the East Valley Reclamation Authority (EVRA), exploring the implementation of recycled water programs as a long-term water supply resource for the city of Indio.
