The Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD) was created in 1949 by the 51st Texas State Legislature for the purpose of providing raw water to the West Texas cities of Big Spring, Odessa, and Snyder. Today, in addition to these original member communities, the District also provides raw water to the cities of Midland, San Angelo, Stanton, Robert Lee, Grandfalls, Abilene, and the Millersville-Doole Water Supply Corporation, supplying wholesale raw water to more than 600,000 residents. CRMWD also operates a public water system, which serves the Town of Pyote and the West Texas State School. In a unique water supply arrangement, the District also operates an environmentally recognized “diverted water” system. This system captures lesser quality, highly mineralized low flow water from the Colorado River and diverts or sells this still-valuable water commodity to existing petroleum industries for use in their secondary oil and gas recovery operations.
The District’s Engineering Services Manager reports to the General Manager and is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the engineering and construction services area for the District, including supervising and directing District staff; engineering design for in-house projects; materials and equipment purchases; coordination with and managing outside engineering firms; construction coordination of outside contractors; and working with District staff on in-house construction. Leading a team of 17 employees, the position manages both internal and external projects, including planning, design, construction, finance, and land and legal matters; oversees and coordinates with outside engineers, contractors, vendors, and suppliers; and supports District operations by providing engineering and construction service support for maintenance projects.
