New deputy power manager announced for Grand Coulee Dam


The Bureau of Reclamation’s Pacific Northwest Region announced that Tim Koczur has been selected as the new deputy power manager at Grand Coulee Dam.

Koczur will serve as a member of the management team, providing leadership and direction for the Grand Coulee Power Office, the bureau said in a press release. He assumed his new duties April 5.

Koczur has worked for the Bureau of Reclamation for eight years. Since 2011, he has served as the facility manager for seven dams and six power plants along the North Platte River in Wyoming. Prior to moving to Wyoming, Koczur was an electrical engineer at Reclamation’s Hungry Horse Dam in Montana.

“Tim’s experience and record of success in power plant and dam maintenance, compliance with Western Energy Control Commission regulations and standards, and workplace safety will be a great benefit to the Grand Coulee Dam facilities,” said Power Manager Coleman Smith. “We welcome him back to the Pacific Northwest and look forward to having him join our team.”

Before joining the bureau, Koczur served in the Air Force as a liaison officer for Delta IV rocket launch support of National Reconnaissance Office satellites. He also spent four years in Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Operation and three years in the U.S. Navy.

Koczur has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla and a master’s degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
