High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 General Manager Jim Conkwright to Retire

High Plains Water Conservation District

The general manager of the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 will retire this month.

Jim Conkwright has served as general manager for 12 years, and served as Precinct Four District Director for 14 years, representing the residents of Armstrong, Deaf Smith, Potter, and Randall Counties.

“His combined knowledge as a board member and in leading the staff leaves no doubt that Jim Conkwright knows more about groundwater policies and issues than most people will learn in a lifetime,” said HPWD Board President Lynn Tate of Amarillo. “We hope to continue drawing upon his expertise even after his retirement.”

Conkwright’s retirement will be effective on June 30th.

The HPWD Board of Directors will recognize Conkwright’s service with a reception to be announced at a later date.

A search for Conkwright’s successor will begin immediately.

The HPWD is charged with the responsibility of conserving, preserving, protecting, and preventing waste of groundwater within its 16-county service area.

HPWD, founded in 1951, was the first underground water conservation district created in Texas.
