  • Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Office welcomes new Program Manager

    The Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Office (CRAO) is pleased to welcome Max DiSante as new Program Manager. DiSante was with RWRD in the Technical Services and Engineering Division Organic Chemistry Lab for three and a half years prior to his promotion. 

    He started his professional career in the private sector at an environmental laboratory as a chemist, and then as laboratory manager and worked there for seven years prior to coming to RWRD. Currently, he spends most of his time learning the deep underbelly of the regulatory, permitting, and enforcement side of CRAO. Most of his experience had been with the analytical/laboratory side of compliance, which only scratches at the surface of what CRAO is responsible for. 

    DiSante’s favorite part of the job, so far, is learning a whole new aspect of the wastewater industry. There are new projects to learn about, new responsibilities, new people to interact with, and, of course, the acronyms. There are a lot of those!

    He says the team at CRAO has made the transition as seamless as possible and he is happy to be working with great people doing great things for the department and the industry as well.

    DiSante was born and raised in Tucson.  All of his direct family members and many of his close friends still live in Tucson, so he’s never had a compelling enough reason to leave. He graduated from Tucson High School, and is a University of Arizona Alumni with a degree in Chemistry. 

    When he’s not working, DiSante likes to camp, eat good food, ski and snowboard, and enjoy the company of friends and family. He says there’s nothing better in life than an easy evening with those you love. 
    “Max brings great talent and energy to the position, and with the CRAO team, RWRD management, and Barbara (Escobar) working with him along the way, CRAO will continue to provide excellent services and support to the department and our external customers," RWRD Deputy Director Eric Wieduwilt said.

    His motto in life is “Just do it.” He explains, “For me, this is the idea of doing something with the full effort and honesty within your power. If you’re going to work on a project, create something that you’re proud of. Be the best person you can be, and don’t let your dreams be dreams”. Great advice, Max!
