Idaho Department of Water Resources Director David Tuthill will retire on June 30, after 33 years with the department, to “pursue a career in the private sector,” according to an IDWR news release. Tuthill served as manager of the department’s western regional office, adjudication bureau chief and water management administrator before being named director in 2007. “The 33 years that I have spent working for the Idaho Department of Water Resources have constituted a wonderful career full of challenge and reward,” Tuthill said. “I have admired my leaders throughout my career including Gov. Otter. Working in the service of the citizens of the state of Idaho, particularly the water users throughout this beautiful state, and with the talented and dedicated IDWR staff, has been gratifying and truly an honor.”
