From Utah’s The Independent:

“After serving as director of the Utah Division of Water Resources for the past six years, Eric Millis will retire from public service Dec. 16. Millis has spent nearly 32 years with the division working on a variety of projects that support the division’s mission to “plan, conserve, develop and protect Utah’s water resources.”

“We appreciate Eric’s years of service to the state,” said Department of Natural Resources Executive Director Brian Steed. ” He is widely recognized both within the state and among our neighboring states as an expert on the Colorado River, which is a critical resource that provides water to about 40 million people in seven Western states. His leadership and friendship will be missed.”
