Jake Lenderking, director of water resources for Global Water Resources since March 2018, was appointed to the board of the Pinal County Water Augmentation Authority in May.
PCWAA supports the development water planning and management in the Pinal Active Management Area. The Pinal AMA includes portions of Pinal, Maricopa and Pima counties in Central Arizona.
“This important appointment reflects Jake’s senior leadership experience with water resource management in Arizona,” said Global Water Resources President and CEO Ron Fleming. “This includes his roles at the Arizona Department of Water Resources, as well as at some of the largest municipal and private water utilities in the state. We believe his work in Pinal County — an area critical to our state’s economic development goals and which could benefit from augmentation — makes him an ideal addition to the PCWAA board.”
Before joining Global Water, Lenderking’s experience included being a water resource manager for the largest investor-owned water utility in Arizona and a water resource specialist for the City of Phoenix. He began his career at the Arizona Department of Water Resources.
