Matt Bond is a contributing writer and serves as the youth education program manager for Denver Water. His daily challenge: engage tots, tweens and teens in the story of water and the need for conservation. Matt has worked at Denver Water for more than 20 years, much of that time in water operations. He is very adept at translating water-utility jargon into plain old everyday English — and Spanish. When not at work, Matt enjoys woodworking, reading, following the city’s professional sports teams and listening to music. Unfortunately, as the married father of two teenage daughters, he doesn’t get much time to do any of those things. Instead he mostly chauffeurs, fixes broken things around the house, maintains his water-friendly yard, unclogs toilets and attempts to navigate modern teenage jargon and sulking.
