EFD is excited to announce the addition of J. Dietrich “Diet” Stroeh to the EFD Board of Directors. Diet Stroeh is one of the founding partners of CSW|Stuber-Stroeh Engineering Group, Inc., a leading Bay Area water engineering firm. Diet has worked closely with local and regional agencies on large and significant water resource projects during his career.
“Diet adds tremendous water engineering depth to EFD’s Board as he is thoroughly familiar with the engineering, institutional, economic, planning and environmental aspects of water resource management,” said Ron Morgan, EFD CEO.
Diet Stroeh is well known for his expertise and for his creative and innovative design solutions to waste water disposal challenges. Diet’s primary focus at CSW/Stuber-Stroeh Engineering Group, Inc. is on the planning, design and management of water and sanitary sewer distribution systems, including on-site waste disposal systems. He is well known throughout California and serves as an expert witness in the areas of hydrology, hydraulics design, small dam design, contract negotiations, and construction management.
Diet’s early professional expertise comes from working for 20 years at Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) with the last 6 years of his career there as General Manager. Under his leadership, MMWD developed a major new in-County water supply and implemented a comprehensive water management plan, including conservation education. Diet was instrumental in achieving a record in County-wide water conservation during the 1976-1977 drought. His experiences during the historic 1970’s drought are the basis of the recently published book, The Man Who Made it Rain by Michael McCarthy.
Diet is a graduate of the University of Nevada and received a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering. He is active in numerous community and professional organizations and currently serves as First Vice President of the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District Board.
