Employee Spotlight

Morgen Durose

Systems Operator

I am truly honored to serve as this month's employee spotlight for Crescenta Valley Water District. I started my career with CVWD 22 years ago as a Utility Worker and served in that position for six years before transferring to the System Operations department. As Systems Operator, some of my duties include monitoring our water system using a computer-controlled data aquisition system called SCADA, collecting a wide variety of water quality samples, maintaining water quality analyzers, booster pumps and motors, and chlorine pumps. Most important is ensuring that the District is delivering safe and reliable water to our customers, and this is my professional passion. 

I am married to my wife of 19 years and have two daughters - Kailee, 18 (class of 2023) will be attending Cal State Fullerton this August; Kinley, 15; and our yellow lab, Shelby. Kinley participates on the Frosh softball team and competed in golf for the freshman and varsity teams last fall. We enjoy camping in the High Sierras and at San Clemente Beach. My hobbies include running, cycling and triathlons. CVWD is not just a place of employment, it is my other family. Through the good and bad we always come together as a team, and we pride ourselves as professionals in our industry. I love what I do and where I do it. La Crescenta is a special place to me, whether the people, the mountains, or all the wildlife. I couldn't ask for a better place to work and a community to serve.
