The Santa Fe Watershed Association and Journeysantafe Present: Claudia Borchert

Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 11:00am

Claudia serves as Santa Fe County’s Sustainability Manger since January 2017.  In that capacity she is working with the County’s administration and our community to “green” the place we call home in areas of recycling/solid waste, energy efficiency and renewable energy, transportation, and water resources.  For the three previous years, Ms. Borchert was the director of the County’s water and wastewater utility, a 10,000-customer operation.  As a water manager and planner for the City of Santa Fe for over 10 years, she worked on policies like the Living River Ordinance, the Long Range Water Supply Plan, and  shortage-sharing agreements.  Ms. Borchert received her MS degree from UNM’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences in 2002, and a bachelor’s degree in geology from Amherst College in 1990.  Her passions include life-long learning, having ‘difficult’ conversations to find in-the-box and out-of-the box solutions, back-country skiing, rafting, and the canyons of the Southwest.
