On June 1, Garland G. Erbele started at the Water Commission as its 18th State Engineer. The State Engineer serves as Chief Engineer and Secretary to the State Water Commission and is responsible for regulating the allocation of the state’s waters, dam safety, sovereign land management, and drainage.
“Garland Erbele’s proven leadership and technical expertise involving the management of major water resources will be a tremendous asset to the State Water Commission and to the state as a whole,” said Gov. Jack Dalrymple, chairman of the nine-member Water Commission. “The Commission was determined to find someone who has the right experience and the strong skill sets needed to build on the great progress we’ve made in managing North Dakota’s diverse water resources, and we’re confident that we found that in Garland Erbele.”
