Welcome, Jordan!

The District is excited to welcome Jordan Wein as the newest staff member! Jordan is the new Water Resources Project Manager, where he will be overseeing implementation of projects that protect and enhance Nine Mile Creek and local lakes, including coordinating lake studies. This primarily includes implementing projects that address lake and creek health but may also include implementing flood control and natural resource restoration projects.

Jordan graduated with a B.S. from North Dakota State University with a Fisheries and Wildlife Management degree and completed his M.S. at the University of Minnesota in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. He spent a year collecting data that led to the groundwork development of many commonly used fisheries management techniques for invasive carp. He then spent two years as a natural resources manager in the Peace Corps volunteering with his wife in Ghana, West Africa. Following this, Jordan has gained nine years of project management experience dealing with invasive fish in Minnesota, Nebraska, Michigan, California, and North Carolina and brings with him an understanding of ecosystem impacts of fisheries on lake and creek health. In his spare time, Jordan enjoys camping with his family, following local MN sports teams, and coaching the winter drumline program with Burnsville High School.
