Tom Reeves to Lead PCWA Field Services
AUBURN -- Placer County Water Agency General Manager David A. Breninger has announced the appointment of Tom Reeves as the agency's new Director of Field Services, effective Jan. 25.
Reeves, a 32-year PCWA veteran, succeeds longtime director Mike Nichol, who retires Jan. 24 following a 24-year career with the water agency.
Selected following an extensive recruitment process, Reeves brings a wide range of water agency experience to his new position. He joined PCWA in 1982 as a water quality investigator and later worked as a water treatment plant operator and lead operator before becoming the agency's water treatment superintendent in 1991. He was named field superintendent in 1996 and deputy director of field services in 2005.
"Tom's expertise on both the treated water and raw water sides, combined with his organizational knowledge and management skills make him eminently qualified to lead the Field Services Department," Breninger said.
The PCWA Field Services Department employs 54 in a variety of occupational specialties. The department is responsible for maintenance and upkeep of 600 miles of pipeline, 165 miles of canal and eight foothill division reservoirs.
Based in Auburn, PCWA supplies treated drinking water and irrigation water to more than 38,500 accounts on the western slope of Placer County and a portion of the Martis Valley in eastern Placer County.
