SAN ANTONIO -- Dr. Calvin Finch was recently named the director of a new Texas A&M University System center that is developing projects focused on high-priority water issues in Texas.

Finch will direct the Water Conservation and Technology Center in San Antonio, administered by the Texas Water Resources Institute in partnership with the Texas Center for Applied Technology, according to these entities’ directors.

“I look forward to being involved in directing and developing this center,” Finch said. “As the 2011 drought has shown, the urgency and importance of water conservation and technology advancement cannot be underestimated or ignored.”

Finch has been involved in Texas water conservation efforts for 22 years, most recently as director of regional initiatives and special programs, director of water resources, and director of conservation for the San Antonio Water System. He was responsible for obtaining the water resources necessary for meeting the water needs of San Antonio, a community of 1.2 million people growing at the rate of 3 percent per year.

He was formerly county Extension director for Travis County and county Extension agent for horticulture for Texas Agricultural Extension Service (now the Texas AgriLife Extension Service) for Bexar County.

Finch writes a horticultural and environmental column for the Wilson County News.

Finch received his doctorate in horticulture from Texas A&M in College Station and his master’s in agriculture from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches.

The center will target its work on four high-priority efforts: water conservation, water reuse, groundwater desalination, and energy development and water use. Its staff will conduct applied research and development; testing and validation; technology transfer; and training and extension education, Finch said.

Currently located at the Texas Engineering Extension Service’s South Presa campus in San Antonio, the center will move to the Texas A&M-San Antonio campus in the future.
