Since joining EI, Maso has focused on urban stormwater management projects that help permittees achieve better environmental outcomes and reduce compliance costs. Maso brings her experience in urban water supply and demand management to EI’s Water Practice Area. After completing her undergraduate degree Maso worked for the City of Santa Barbara’s Water Conservation Office where she developed tools to incentivize residential water conservation. Maso completed her master’s degree at the Bren School as a Walton Family Foundation Sustainable Water Markets Fellow where she learned about the barriers to and enabling conditions for water markets. At Bren, Maso specialized in Water Resources Management and Economics and Politics of the Environment. For her master’s thesis, she analyzed whether the existing water allocation system in Southern California incentivizes water agencies to conserve water leading up to and during a drought. Through educational and professional experiences Maso is familiar with the challenges of sustainably managing Western water supplies for the needs of diverse stakeholders including the environment.
