KINGS BEACH, Calif. – Robin Runyon, North Tahoe Public Utility District’s water quality technician retired on Feb. 1 after serving since May 11, 1984. Originally hired in the administrative department as a customer service representative, she distinguished herself by dedication to the District and community, working with all members of the public in a friendly and professional manner; building strong relationships between the District and its community. She moved up into the utility operations department performing meter reading duties for the water department to a high standard. For years she walked the District through seasons of rain, sleet, and snow while befriending countless neighborhood dogs.

Never to rest on her laurels, Robin aided the District in the advancement of electronic reading technology, (ERT) saving time and money by allowing for electronic meter reading instead of walking and visually reading each meter. Most recently, she was instrumental in coordinating implementation of the MLog program allowing for early detection of water leaks.

Robin Runyon and her friendly and professional disposition will be greatly missed by the North Tahoe Public Utility District and the public upon her retirement in 2013. The District is proud of her longtime association and extends its best wishes to Robin Runyon for continued health and happiness in her retirement, and success in all future endeavors.

The North Tahoe Public Utility District office is located at 875 National Ave. in Tahoe Vista. For information, visit or call 530-546-4212.
