Our Faces of Yuba Water series highlights Yuba Water Agency’s great employees and the work that they do to make Yuba County a better place. In this spotlight, we showcase Yuba Water's project manager, JoAnna Lessard, who leads and supports programs and projects that benefit the agency's mission areas, including water supply reliability, natural resource management, watershed resilience and forest health and more. With an extensive background in aquatic research and studies, she made the decision to switch her career focus from the stream to the watershed after experiencing California's 2014 drought, so that she could support water management and help solve conservation issues.
