Northern Water General Manager to Retire
Northern Water General Manager Eric Wilkinson has announced he will be retiring in the early part of 2018. He made the announcement to the Northern Water Board of Directors during its September 14 meeting.
Wilkinson has spent 30 years at Northern Water, the past 24 as general manager. He is recognized as one of Colorado’s leading water statesmen and is a past recipient of the Colorado Water Congress’ Aspinall Award given to Colorado’s water leader of the year.
In October, the Board will be deciding its course of action to replace Wilkinson.
Northern Water Board President Mike Applegate said, “Eric Wilkinson is one of those rare people that comes along once in a lifetime and Northern Water was blessed to have him as our manager. He built an organization with a culture based on excellence and continual improvement. The Board of Directors are confident that the next general manager will continue to lead Northern Water with that same vision of service to Northern Colorado.”
