Ron Gastelum Named to Falcon Waterfree Board of Advisors

Accomplished water supply leader Ron Gastelum has received an appointment to the Board of Advisors for Falcon Waterfree Technologies – the world’s leading water-free urinal systems manufacturer located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“Communities throughout the United States are facing limits in water supplies that threaten to result in shortages and economic instability. But, reliable water supplies and stable costs can become a reality for everyone through the use of smart, efficient systems like those provided by Falcon Waterfree Technologies,” said Gastelum. “I am privileged and honored by this opportunity to be part of a remarkable solution.”

Mr. Gastelum’s career spans 30 years with leadership in public water supply and waste management. As the Chief Executive Officer of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the nation’s largest water wholesaler, Mr. Gastelum led the diversification of regional water supply resources with the development of new programs for large water transfer, groundwater banking, reclaimed water, and conservation. This was during a period of extended drought conditions, a statewide energy crisis, and an expected but nonetheless challenging reduction in Southern California’s Colorado River water rights caused by an adverse court decision in the 1960’s. Mr. Gastelum is also an attorney with extensive experience in both public sector and in private practice focusing on corporate and environmental matters. His environmental practice has emphasized public water supply and waste management.

Mr. Gastelum received his undergraduate degree from Whittier College and law degree from UCLA. He resides with his family in southern California where he develops new business ventures in the environmental field and serves on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, the Los Angeles Children’s Museum, and the Aquarium of the Pacific.
