Who We Are

EVMWD, a public non-profit agency, was created on December 23, 1950 under the Municipal Water District Act of 1911. As a special district, EVMWD’s powers include provision of public water service, water supply development and planning, wastewater treatment and disposal, and recycling. Currently, the district has over 42,000 water, wastewater and agricultural service connections.

A Board of Directors sets governing policy and is the final authority for related appeals. The Board is authorized to set rates, fees and charges for district services, operations, and debt financing of capital improvements.
