With perfectionism embedded in his DNA, Nathan is devoted to ensuring our valued residents have clean, safe, reliable, on-demand drinking water, wastewater, parks, trails, and open space services.
Nathan joined CPNMD in 2012. Before coming to CPNMD, he worked in the line-maintenance division of the Town of Castle Rock utilities. He started as a water-meter reader and left six years later as a senior maintenance technician and crew lead.
During his tenure with CPNMD, Nathan has been intimately involved with every facet of CPNMD’s budget, finance, operations, and the proposed Inclusion of CPNMD’s water and wastewater utilities with those of a larger neighboring district. Though he never claimed the title, for most intents and purposes, Nathan functioned as the former District Manager's right hand and de facto deputy district manager. In that context following our former Manager's retirement, Nathan’s rise to the position of district manager is an acknowledgment of his competence, hard work, commitment to excellence, and knowledge.
Before taking over as district manager, Nathan served as CPNMD’s water and wastewater operations manager. In that capacity, Nathan’s primary responsibilities encompassed leading the staff/consultant/contractor team in ensuring the safe and proper operation of our community’s water and wastewater facilities, including CPNMD’s:
- deep water wells in the Denver Basin Aquifer System;
- newly renovated water treatment plant;
- water distribution system;
- wastewater collections system and lift stations; and
- utility infrastructure GIS mapping and asset management program.
As water and wastewater operations manager, Nathan worked closely with Centennial Water & Sanitation District (Highlands Ranch) staff on CPNMD’s InterConnect Pump Station & Pipeline operations through which our community, for seven months of the year, accesses its 1,006 acre-feet of renewable water stored in Chatfield Reservoir.
Nathan also has experience identifying and managing CPNMD’s utility infrastructure upgrades and repairs, while forecasting capital project needs decades into the future.
A Colorado native, Nathan spends as much time outdoors as possible. Often referring to himself as a "Colorado Caricature" he takes every opportunity to rock-climb, snowboard, backpack, camp, or jump on his mountain bike.
