The Manager also seeks to promote awareness of water issues and the long-term stability of existing water resources with area residents.

John has 25 plus years of professional experience working on water-related issues including state and local governments, mining, municipal, irrigation, and power utilities in Arizona and other western states. In these various capacities, John has participated in numerous water rights issues, capital project design and development, and developed hydrologic analyses and water portfolios.
