Longtime Kern water leader leaving for private sector
Kern County’s water community had a shake-up Tuesday when longtime Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District General Manager Eric Averett announced he is leaving to take a private sector job.
This comes on top of the pending retirement of another key local water manager.
Richard Diamond, General Manager of North Kern Water Storage District, announced he will retire later this year.
Though Diamond’s departure has had a long lead time, Averett will move on within the next 90 days, he said.
