Jean-Pierre Wolff of San Luis Obispo has been elected chairman of the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. Monica Hunter of Los Osos will serve as the vice chair.

Wolff replaces Jeffrey Young, who was chairman for the past nine years. Young remains on the water board.

Wolff is the owner and vintner of Wolff Vineyards in the Edna Valley. He has also held executive positions with energy firms.

His election to the top spot on the board comes as the Central Coast is suffering from an unprecedented drought.

“Groundwater nitrate contamination and safe drinking water will remain a long-term challenge requiring close collaboration between stakeholders and regulators,” he said.
