Snell takes over water association


SALEM -- The Oregon Water Resources Congress has named April Snell executive director.

Snell served as the organization's assistant director from 2007 to 2011. She has been interim executive director during the association's search for a permanent director.

Former director of the association, Anita Winkler, left last year to take a position with the city of Santa Rosa, Calif.

Snell has a master's degree in public administration and a bachelor's in political science, both from the University of Oregon.

The Oregon Water Resources Congress, based in Salem, is a nonprofit trade association that represents irrigation districts and other agricultural water providers.

District members deliver water to more than 560,000 acres of farmland.
