Warren County Water District Board of Commissioners announced the selection of Jacob Cuarta as the new general manager. He will also serve as the general manager for Butler County Water System, Inc. and Simpson County Water District.

Cuarta, replaces John Dix, who is retiring in June after serving our community for over 30 years. The decision follows an extensive nationwide search process.

Cuarta previously led the Water Quality and Operations Division for Pasco County Utilities in Florida, a large public utility with over 122,000 customers. While overseeing all water production/treatment, data analytics, and distribution system water quality, he was engaged in strong customer service and regulatory legislative affairs. Prior to that role, Cuarta worked as a Project Manager for the Southwest Florida Water Management District completing oversight on a vast array of projects, such as transmission, production, pumping, residential conservation through automated metering infrastructure, and leak detection. He also has worked with the Kentucky Department of Environmental Protection providing operator certification training in water treatment, distribution, and wastewater system operations.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as general manager,” Cuarta said. “I look forward to building upon Warren Water’s legacy of dedication to ensure high-quality water and wastewater services throughout the entire service area. Warren Water’s strong team culture with a spirit of giving reinforced my decision to return to my Kentucky roots.”

A graduate of Western Kentucky University, Cuarta holds a master’s degree in public health, with heavy emphasis in all aspects of environmental health and earned his bachelor’s degree in environmental science. Originally from Bowling Green Kentucky, he has family embedded in the Bowling Green community for more than seventy-five years and is excited to return to the area with his wife and four-year-old daughter.

“The announcement of Jacob Cuarta as the new general manager during Drinking Water Week is the perfect complement to our celebration of water professionals,” Dion Houchins, board commissioner said. “Jacob will be an excellent fit. He has a strong commitment to innovation, collaboration and community engagement. All critical qualities to successfully lead Warren, Simpson and Butler Water today and in the future.”
