Bureau of Water Supply Planning
As a Technical Program Manager, you will play a pivotal role in protecting the regions springs, lakes, rivers, and wetlands. As a member of the Bureau of Water Supply Planning, you will be a leader in protecting water resources while ensuring a sustainable water supply for growth in the region. Members of the Bureau work toward meeting these goals in a collaborative and productive atmosphere. You will lead a team of scientists, engineers, and hydrologists to evaluate the potential impacts to these water resources and their related ecosystems that may result from groundwater and surface water withdrawals. Working with your team and the region’s stakeholders, you will develop solutions to address any impacts, while ensuring that future water supply needs are met and that our natural resources are protected. The solutions you develop include the identification of water conservation measures that could be implemented or identifying projects to recharge the aquifer and/or quantifying alternative sources of water to meet the current and future water use demands.

Job duties include:

Examples of this work include reviewing the results from and/or using surface and groundwater models, statistical analysis, and/or geospatial analysis to characterize the relationship between water withdrawals and their potential impact to the ecosystems, surrounding surface waters, wetlands, or springs.

  • Develop and recommend solutions, in collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, to address impacts to water resources and their related ecosystems through implementation of local and regional projects such as water conservation, identifying alternative water supply sources and groundwater recharge, surface water capture and storage or other options to meet demands, while protecting the resource. Your recommendations will serve as a key component to support the statutory requirements for development of Regional Water Supply Plans and Minimum Flows and Minimum Levels (MFLs) Prevention and Recovery strategies.

  • You will serve as an agency subject matter expert on matters of resource assessment, mitigation approaches, strategy development and project implementation.
