Pima County has appointed a new director to the Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department.

Following a nationwide search, Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry appointed Jackson Jenkins to head the department.

Jenkins will fill the position being vacated by Michael Gritzuk.

He worked for more than 20 years in the mining industry before joining Pima County in 2004 as deputy director of the wastewater department.

Jenkins holds a master’s degree in business administration from Western New Mexico University and a bachelor’s of science in engineering from the University of Arizona. 

He also holds the highest-level state certification in wastewater collection, wastewater treatment, water treatment and water distribution.

Gritzuk intends to continue to work part-time to facilitate the progression of the Regional Optimization Master Plan (ROMP) Program, a mandated upgrade program required by state and federal regulations.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
