Class Research Project: Water Quality in California
What was your job when you were a Water Leader: A consultant with CH2M Hill
We came across Mark Tompkins when he recommended a current employee from FlowWest to become a 2016 Water Leader. We found it interesting that two other former water leaders – Mike Urkov, class of 1999 and Paul Frank, class of 2010 – also work at the small company. Below is a conversation Tompkins had with Executive Director Jennifer Bowles.
I help manage the district’s water department, consisting of more than 450 dedicated staff focused on managing and delivering IID’s annual 3.1 million acre-feet Colorado River entitlement to our largely agricultural customer base in southeastern California.
