Welcome Cliff Aichinger back in a new role

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Cliff Aichinger to Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District’s (RWMWD) Board of Managers.

Appointed by the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners, Cliff brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Board from his 40+ year career in environmental planning and watershed protection, including his 33 year role as RWMWD Administrator.

His impressive resume includes innovative project planning and execution, extensive writing, effective communication, countless leadership roles, personnel management, financial administration, and an all-around ability to get good things done. Welcome back, Cliff!

When asked about his new role, Cliff responded:
“Many of our readers know me already, but this is a new role with the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District. After almost a year into retirement and after the sudden resignation of long-standing Board member Paul Ellefson, I gave serious thought to possibly serving the District on the Board of Managers. I believe that my 43 years of land use, environmental and water resource planning and management experience, as well as my considerable experience with Boards and committees, will be strong assets for the District Board. I would like to assist the Board in continuing to improve the quality of our waters and related natural resources.

I strongly believe that Watershed Districts play a critical role in the protection and restoration of our waters and natural resources in collaboration with our member cities, local organizations and local and state agencies. There will be significant challenges to achieving District goals and I would like to assist in this effort. I look forward to serving the District in this new role.”
