Marana Water News: Partnership - Marana Water & Development Services

Marana Water has two engineers on the team, the Water and Water Reclamation Engineer, and the Assistant Water Director. These two positions work across all the divisions of Marana Water, and particularly closely with the Development Services (DSC) team. Development of all types, residential, commercial, or industrial, often have multiple types of plan reviews, and our engineers work each day to ensure proper planning and design. Both work on a project from the design phase through completion of construction. This means that each day is unique and different.

As would be expected, the two engineers on staff have engineering specialties in water and water reclamation. As the Assistant Water Director, Scott Schladweiler oversees the water and water reclamation operations as well as the engineering division. He manages projects with the Engineering sections of Development Services. Coordinating the locations of new water infrastructure in public rights of way, and ensuring there are no conflicts during construction of drainage ways or roadway projects are two ways Mr. Schladweiler and the Town Engineering Department work together.

While the Assistant Director is working on the entirety of the Town, our Water and Water Reclamation Engineer, Jesse Schultz, works on the finer points of a project. He is reviewing plans for all projects checking they meet all standards and specifications set by Marana Water. He is also checking the types of materials used will meet the standards so infrastructure will last as long as expected. Mr. Schultz also coordinates the administrative portion of these construction projects. Working closely with the procurement and contacts team in the Finance department, he works on setting up initial meetings, preparing requests for information/proposal, and inspections of the site.

These two gentlemen provide their expertise on the water portion of Town projects and infrastructure. The Development Services team partners with Marana Water on these projects, and also takes care of the rest of the Town. Since most projects will begin with DSC, there are several services they provide for Marana Water. The permit staff collects certain fees on our behalf, provides copies and distribution of plans for review, collects comments from all reviewers, and acts as a primary contact for the customer. On Town projects, this incredible staff provides insight on rights of way, drainage engineering, grading, paving, traffic control, and much more.

Partnering with DSC gives all customers coming to build in the Town a streamlined and comprehensive experience. The services provided by the Development Services team help to keep Marana Water running smoothly. We are all working to provide the best customer experience possible.
