Mach reappointed to Oklahoma Water Quality Management Advisory Council
For a second time, Garver Oklahoma Water Team Leader Mary Elizabeth Mach, PE has been appointed to sit on Oklahoma’s Water Quality Management Advisory Council (WQMAC). Citing her “extremely valuable” command of issues and subject matter relative to water, ODEQ Executive Director Scott A. Thompson made the announcement on May 21.
Mach was first appointed to the council in August 2019 by Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt. During her first term on the 12-member council, which provides recommendations to the Oklahoma Environmental Quality Board on rules governing the state’s water quality, Mach had the opportunity to be a leading voice in shaping the future of water in Oklahoma.
"Water is at the heart of everything – our homes, our communities, our families,” Mach said. “It’s such an honor to play a part in improving the quality of this resource which touches so many across the state of Oklahoma.”
In many respects, Mach’s work on the council is an extension of what she’s done for well over a decade.
Working out of Garver’s Norman, Oklahoma, office, Mach leads a team of more than 20 professionals tasked with making sure that there’s clean, safe water for generations to come. In addition to managing complex projects geared toward improving Oklahoma’s water infrastructure, Mach’s passions include advancing drinking water supplies security and water reuse applications.
Mach, who holds degrees from Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma, was also named to ENR Texas & Louisiana's 2021 Class of Top Young Professionals earlier this year.
