Kathryn Mallon is an exceptionally talented and competent engineer. She has served the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA) and the Delta Conveyance Project with creativity, efficiency and enthusiasm in a time of critical importance. Her expertise has guided the DCA to deliver the important technical information necessary to support our robust environmental planning and review process. I am grateful to Kathryn for her leadership, ingenuity and vision. The DCA will be in capable hands with Graham Bradner, and I look forward to continuing our partnership with him, the DCA staff and its Board of Directors as we advance the project.
