After serving as the interim executive officer for the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board for the past year, Ken Harris has been named to permanently fill the position.

The board announced the hiring at a meeting Wednesday. He replaces Roger Briggs, who retired a year ago.

Harris has worked for the state’s water boards for 26 years as an associate engineering geologist and assistant deputy director of the Department of Water Resources’ Office of Water Quality.

“He has already proven his calm stewardship of a number of issues important to this region, which we are fortunate will continue on a permanent basis,” Jeffrey Young, chairman of the water board, said of Harris.
