Campbell joined the CLWA board in 2001 after serving on the board of the Newhall County Water District for four years prior. He is a registered civil engineer and is a project manager for the Metropolitan Water Agency of Southern California, specializing in large water storage and distribution systems.

The Castaic Lake Water Agency is a water wholesaler, providing half of the water used in the Santa Clarita Valley by homes and businesses. The agency operates two treatment plants, two pumping stations, two storage facilities and more than 17 miles of transmission pipelines.
The Santa Clarita Valley’s available sources of drinking water include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. CLWA supplements local groundwater supplies with State Water Project water from Northern California.
This water is treated and delivered to the Santa Clarita Valley’s four local water purveyors: Los Angeles County Waterworks District #36, Newhall County Waterworks District, Santa Clarita Water Division, and Valencia Water Company.
CLWA has an ongoing program of water supply testing and protection. Security measures to protect the Santa Clarita Valley’s water supply are in place at all facilities.
