On August 1, 2017, Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation District welcomed Ralph Sifuentes as a Field Technician. Sifuentes was born and raised in Hearne, Texas before moving to Rockdale in 1979.
Mr. Sifuentes has over 27 years of experience in drilling and groundwater. He began working for Alcoa as a driller and drilling supervisor. In 1994, Sifuentes started supervising the drilling of groundwater monitoring wells. After working with Alcoa, Sifuentes worked for Luminant by supervising installation of wells, as well as groundwater mitigation and monitoring.
As a field technician for POSGCD, Sifuentes will assist in monitoring wells, checking water levels and water quality, troubleshooting, and performing well inspections.
Sifuentes said that his experience and background in groundwater, as well as being involved with the installation of monitor wells, will help him perform the duties of the POSGCD Field Technician. In addition, he will be talking to landowners about adding their wells to the POSGCD Monitoring Network.
With his extensive drilling background and knowledge about groundwater and wells, Sifuentes is a valuable addition to the POSGCD staff and they are excited to have him aboard.
