January 12, 2010--Longtime Denver Water chief Chips Berry to retire (Denver Post)

Longtime Denver Water manager Chips Barry announced Monday that he will retire this spring — and board members are mobilizing to hunt for a successor. Barry said he plans to spend more time on his farm in Hawaii, where he produces macadamia nuts, coffee and honey. Running Denver Water "is a big, public, visible, high-power job. I've been here a long enough time that, I think, I should move on and let somebody else do it," he said. Since 1991, Barry, 65, has led Denver Water through dealings with other water suppliers,
