Thomure tapped to top Tucson Water
A local water engineer has been picked to lead Tucson's municipal water utility, City Manager Michael Ortega announced Friday evening.
Timothy Thomure, a manager for HDR Engineering in Tucson who previously worked for Tucson Water and the city Department of Transportation, will take over as the head of the city's water department.
The top post had been vacant since Alan Forrest resigned last June.
After a nationwide search, three finalists were announced by Ortega at the beginning of December: Thomure, as well as Robert (Scott) Clark, a deputy director of Tucson Water since August, and George Maseeh, a senior vice president for ARCADIS/Malcom Pirnie, Inc., a local civil engineering firm.
Thomure worked for the city from 1999 to 2007, when he worked on the Clearwater Program and the planning, design and construction of the Central Arizona Project recharge and recovery infrastructure.
