Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District board named Amanda Maloukis to general manager effective July 1. She joined TGRGCD as assistant general manager in March 2020.

According to a news release, Maloukis has years of water industry experience, including serving as general manager of the Rusk County Groundwater Conservation District in Henderson.

Prior to RCGCD, Maloukis was an environmental specialist for the San Antonio Water System where she specialized in well drilling, well plugging, water quality sampling and customer assistance in helping SAWS maintain safe water production and delivery systems.

The release states Maloukis earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas State University and maintains various levels of licenses and certifications in the water industry.

Maloukis succeeds George Wissmann, who announced his plan to retire from the district in March 2024. TGRGCD Board President Joe du Menil said Maloukis has the expertise and skills to oversee an agency that helps to maintain water quality and track water levels in the north Bexar County portion of the Trinity Aquifer.

“[Maloukis] been a key staff member here over the past three years in helping us begin the process of revamping the district’s rules, leading our efforts in tracking water legislation and guiding the district toward updating its database capabilities,” du Menil said in a statement. “In addition to the district’s work, [Maloukis] is now vice-chair of the Groundwater Management Area No. 9 regional water planning group as well as the Camp Bullis Sentinel Landscape federal program established in 2022 to protect aquifers in Bexar County like the Trinity Aquifer and Edwards Aquifer.”

TGRGCD officials said Wissmann, who has been the district’s manager since 2006, will continue working with the agency over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition in leadership.
