Charles Hinson

Charles Hinson

Director

Charles and his wife, Ava Lea, have lived off and on in Douglas County for over 20 years, including the last 7 years in The Pinery.  They have one child and one great grandchild.

Chuck recently retired from the oil & gas industry where he spent over 40 years in exploration and field development as a geophysicist. Chuck started his career as an exploration geophysicist and has held positions ranging from Senior, Staff, and Regional Geophysicist to Task Force Supervisor and Project Manager. During his career, Chuck developed and honed his skills in subsurface imaging to economically drill and complete oil and gas wells.  Chuck and his wife have lived in Indonesia, Poland, Canada, Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Colorado.  His international postings provided Chuck with insight into other countries’ culture.  For example, Chuck discovered that in Canada, French is not a foreign language! 

Chuck has taken an active interest in his local communities over the years. For example, Chuck served as an office on two Douglas County HOA Boards, and he has also served on the Pinery Water Conservation Task Force.  In addition, his experience in the budgeting and technical challenges involved in drilling oil & gas wells has provided Chuck with insight and understanding into water well drilling, which is periodically required to meet water demand in The Pinery. Chuck is a “people person” and recognizes the value of interpersonal skills in dealing with Pinery residents as well as local and state governmental agencies with whom the Pinery Board must interact.

 Chuck appreciates the Colorado lifestyle and never passes up the opportunity to visit the high country. As a longtime resident of Douglas County, he is intimately aware of the importance and challenges of providing a quality water supply to The Pinery. Lastly, Chuck also recognizes what a privilege it is to serve on the Board of Directors and the responsibility of such a position.

At that time he was selected to attend the Control Systems Cybersecurity Advanced training course provided by the Industrial Control System Computer Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) within the Department of Homeland Security. This course provided extensive training on methods for attacking and defending industrial controls systems.

In his free time he enjoys spending as much time as possible with his family, particularly out in nature, camping and hiking.

Josh has enjoyed and been honored to be involved with the Pinery Water and Wastewater District, first as a member of the Water Efficiency Task Force and now as a member of the Board. He looks forward to continuing to contribute his expertise to the work of maintaining cost-effective, secure and resilient service to the members of the District.
