Central Basin Municipal Water District

It's Time to Vote! 


In 2016, Central Basin MWD faced new legislation which resulted in the District expanding the membership of the Board of Directors. In addition to the five publically-elected directors, which represent the District’s five separate divisions, three additional directors will be appointed by water purveyors within the District pursuant to Section 71267 of the Water Code. Until 2022, Central Basin is to have an eight member Board; after 2022, the Board will decrease to seven directors, as one of the elected positions will be eliminated through redistricting.

Two of the three appointed seats up for election this year in regards to the appointment process are:

  • A director to represent the large water purveyors, each purveyor will have one vote; and
  • A director to represent all purveyors, the vote of each purveyor shall be weighted to reflect the number of service connections the purveyor has within the District.

Call for Nominations

The District will mail Nomination Forms by Thursday, October 25, 2018, to water purveyors within the service area. Ballots will be opened at a Special Purveyor Workshop on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

Voting Process

After the District has tallied the nominations, the ballots will be mailed on January 14, 2019. The results will be opened at the Purveyor Workshop on Wednesday, February 20, 2019.

Appointed Directors will be installed on Friday, February 22, 2019 at 12:00PM.
