Jacklynn Gould Named Deputy Regional Director for Reclamation’s Lower Colorado RegionThe Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Regional Director Terry Fulp announced the selection of Jacklynn L. Gould (Jaci) as the Region’s new Deputy Regional Director. Gould began working in the Boulder City headquarters on March 1, 2016.
“I’m pleased that Jaci is joining our Regional Office leadership team here in Boulder City,” said Director Fulp. “Jaci has a proven track record of successful partnerships and management of complex programs that will benefit the Region’s stakeholders and employees as a part of our leadership team.”
Gould will provide oversight for Regional programs such as the Lower Colorado Dams Area Office (Hoover, Davis and Parker dams), the Phoenix Area and Southern California Area offices, Native American activities and the Region’s Engineering office, among others.
“While this Region’s issues of lingering drought combined with our charge to deliver water and power will be quite a challenge, I look forward to making a positive contribution to our work, our employees and Regional stakeholders,” said Gould. “Throughout my career with the federal government, I’ve also enjoyed coaching and mentoring the next generation of talented professionals entering Reclamation,” said Gould.
In the last 10 years, Gould has served in various management positions in Reclamation’s Great Plains Region. At the Eastern Colorado Area Office in Loveland, Colorado, she started as the Resources Division Manager and worked up to the position of Area Manager. As Area Manager, she was responsible for all aspects of the extensive Colorado-Big Thompson and Fryingpan-Arkansas projects, including 15 dams and reservoirs, and 7 hydropower plants with a total of 12 generator units. Prior to the Eastern Colorado Area Office, Gould served in Reclamation’s Upper Colorado Region Albuquerque Area Office as Water Resources Division Manager.
Gould’s career in water management began with Reclamation in 1992 after attending the University of Colorado, where she earned Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in both Biology and Civil Engineering, and a Master’s degree in Public Administration (MPA). Gould is also licensed as a professional engineer (P.E.).
