Bureau of Reclamation Seal

Bureau of Reclamation Acting Commissioner Lowell Pimley has named Tom Luebke, P.E., as Director of Reclamation’s Technical Service Center. He will start his new position on June 1, 2014.

"The TSC is a critical component of Reclamation, providing the necessary technical expertise to inform and implement decisions by Reclamation and our partners to provide a sustainable water and power future for the West," Pimley said. "Tom is the perfect person to provide the operational and strategic leadership needed to ensure the TSC continues to meet the evolving needs of Reclamation and the West."

As TSC Director, Luebke will oversee an organization of 500 scientists and engineers located in Denver, providing studies, analysis, research and design and specifications support for Reclamation's programs, regions and area offices, other federal agencies and international customers.

Luebke was most recently the Deputy Director of the TSC and spent much of his career as a civil engineer engaged in the design, analysis and construction of embankment dams. Prior to serving as Deputy Director, he served as the TSC’s Business Manager, providing key financial and operational guidance to the organization.

He joined Reclamation in 1974, while still a student, on the Rio Grande Project in El Paso, Texas, and in 1976 he transferred to the Palmetto Bend Dam Construction Project in south Texas as a civil engineer. He then moved to the Denver office in 1978 and was a principal designer. Luebke developed and directed designs on major water project features including Brantley Dam in New Mexico and Jackson Lake Dam modifications in Wyoming. He later managed the Geotechnical Design Group and the Structural Behavior and Instrumentation Group.

Luebke has a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas - El Paso and a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado. He has been a Registered Professional Engineer in Colorado since 1980.
