The Denver Post reported the move on Dec. 17, 2015, in “Colorado DNR head Mike King moving to Denver Water.” King has served as Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources since 2010. He will become Director of Planning at Denver Water.
Governor John Hickenlooper is quoted in the story as stating that King’s “ability to balance industry and conservation concerns is unparalleled. Colorado is a better place because of Mike’s service.”
