Board of Directors
Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency
Steve Jordan was appointed by the Purissima Hills Water District to the Board of Directors of the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency in February 2019. He is a member of the PHWD board, which serves the Los Altos Hills area.
Steve Jordan is President and CEO of WaterCity, a distributed water recycling provider. He has over 20 years' strategy and technology consulting experience with Jordan Consulting Group, R.B. Webber & Company in Palo Alto, and with McKinsey & Company. In addition Steve has held senior management roles in the semiconductor and computer industries at Paget Systems, Poqet Computer, IPValue Management, Fairchild Semiconductor, Daisy Systems, and Mostek Corporation.
Steve has focused on helping PHWD improve the water system for better earthquake resiliency, upgrade the system to reduce system leaks, install advanced technology to help customers identify leaks and conserve usage, and work with other agencies focused on conservation. He has led the development of several proposals to Los Altos Hills County Fire District wherein they helped fund projects of mutual interest. He identified an early pioneer in smart water meters that the District eventually adopted, and worked with Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) on funding an early stage grant allowing PHWD to jump start its installation of smart water meters. He has also investigated whether PHWD could more efficiently provide water to its customers via potential alliances with investor owned utilities in the area.
Steve is also Chairman of the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the Power and Energy Society. He serves as PHWD's representative on SCVWD Environmental and Water Resources Committee, where he engages in that District's countywide responsibilities. He is also PHWD's representative to the WaterNowAlliance, a conservation organization for the Western U.S.
Steve holds BS degrees in both Economics and Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. He and his wife Susan have lived in Los Altos Hills over 30 years, with all three of their daughters attending schools in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.
