Mr. Conklin has lived on his family's farmstead near Tumalo, here in our District, since 1986. As Field Ops Supervisor/Manager, he provides field review of development activities, helps inform capital improvement project design, manages planning and implementation of district field maintenance and new infrastructure, and is responsible for managing field staff and making sure that water deliveries are met. Karl is a true jack of all trades.
Karl and his wife Kim have a grown son, Kyle. Karl is a native Oregonian, has completed courses in business and computer science at OSU, and is a natural, self taught engineer. He has a background that includes 12 years as a business owner and 7 years in construction and construction management. He has irrigated his own 50 acre farm here in the district for many years. Karl works closely with the General Manager to implement and enforce policy, protect and improve District field assets, and mitigate against short and long-range field-based liabilities.
As an aside, if you're lucky enough to have Karl gift you his family's homemade granola and caramel at Christmas, you're lucky enough.
