Richard Cropper was introduced as the new watermaster for the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District on Monday evening. Cropper previously served as superintendent of Linden-based Friis Constructors, according to News-Sentinel archives.
He replaces Pete Weinzheimer, who worked for the district for 35 years and officially retires Sept. 1. A celebration will be held to honor Weinzheimer's career in the coming weeks, said district president Bryan Pilkington, but no date has yet been planned.
