Andrew (Andy) Chismar Jr.

Position: Vice Chair
Term: Term Expires May 2027 Board member since 3/25/13

Andy Chismar was elected to the board in 2013. As a former teacher of history and social studies, as well as a current member of the Knights of Columbus, civic involvement was a major draw to becoming a board member. The thought struck Andy after he learned about a study on the intrusion of groundwater into wastewater. With his interest piqued, Andy looked into how he could get further involved.

In his time on the board, Andy has been continually intrigued by how things have changed, and the continuous hard work that goes into the process of treating wastewater in order to safely return it to our water systems. It’s also made him more alert to what you can put down the drain.

What does Andy see as the biggest issue facing the District?

“Growth in the area,” he says. “Since I’ve been on the board, we’ve grown the District and had two plant expansions to meet the needs of the development. But based on what’s happening in the area, it will continue to grow. So, we’re ensuring that we can handle things in an equitable way to make sure people’s needs are being met.”
