California Briefing / Los Angeles

Fleming named to water board

March 26, 2009|Rich Connell

Seeking to bolster a high-profile conservation agenda, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has named prominent business and government veteran David W. Fleming to the board of Metropolitan Water District, the agency that supplies much of Southern California's water.

Fleming, a lawyer who has led city and state commissions as well as the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, will become a Metropolitan Water District director as the agency is warning that it may curtail deliveries because of water shortages in state reservoirs.

"David is eminently qualified to lead us through the drought and water shortages that have become an inconvenient reality for Los Angeles," the mayor said.

The mayor has pushed a variety of water use restrictions and penalties for water waste as he burnishes his environmental record and weighs a possible run for governor.
