Meet Bill Moorhead
I was born in Maryland and raised in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, from age three until I went away to college. My father was a math professor at Gettysburg College. My mother was a musician (piano teacher/church organist). I studied advanced biology in high school, which led me to a biology major at Washington and Jefferson College in Western Pennsylvania.
After college, I worked for five years at a municipality outside of Pittsburgh. I started as a laboratory technician and then grew into wastewater operations and water operations. As a manager I also fixed main breaks and unplugged sewer manholes, cleaned sewer lines and installed water mains. I came to California and worked as a treatment supervisor for Santa Barbara’s wastewater treatment plant for five years. I then worked for a consulting firm in Orange County for fifteen years as an engineer in water and wastewater operations consulting.
I went back to school and worked on a master’s degree at Loyola Marymount University in civil engineering and environmental engineering. By this time, in addition to attending school, I obtained a professional engineering license (P.E.). I also attained licensing at the highest levels in wastewater operations, water operations, wastewater collections maintenance and third highest level in water distribution maintenance, second highest level in laboratory technician.
During my career I’ve held various high level positions in the California Water Environment Association and Orange County Water Association, and am currently a board member of the Lake Mission Viejo Association. I've served as elected Director on the Moulton Niguel Water District Board since 2018.
But one of my proudest accomplishments is being father to an amazing daughter and husband to a wonderful woman.
