Leadership, Vision and Mission

A Message from our Director, Greg Geist

Greg Geist joined Clackamas County Water Environment Services in 2013 after working for 11 years at the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. As a child in western Washington, he grew up surrounded by salt water⁠. Then his family put a well in the ground, and fresh water came bubbling out. “Water has been a lifelong obsession ever since,” Greg says. “I think I share that passion with virtually everyone at WES. We care about clean water. We care about this community. We want to work hard and meet its needs.”

Vision: Where We Are Going

Be a collaborative partner in building a resilient clean water future where all people benefit and rivers thrive.
