The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
Board of Directors

Metropolitan is governed by a 38-member Board of Directors, representing each of the district's 26 member agencies.  Each member agency is represented by one or more directors based on the assessed property valuation of its jurisdiction. The board is responsible for establishing and administering Metropolitan's policies and upholding the articles in the MWD Act.


Metropolitan's Board of Directors typically meets on the second Tuesday of each month, with committee meetings occurring on the Monday preceding the board meeting and the second and fourth Tuesday of the month.


Standing committees of the board include: Executive; Finance and Insurance; Water Planning and Stewardship; Engineering and Operations; Organization, Personnel and Technology; Legal and Claims; Real Property and Asset Management; and Communications and Legislation.  In addition, the Board has five special committees: Agriculture and Industry Relations; Audit and Ethics; Conservation and Local Resources; Integrated Resources Planning; and Special Committee on Bay-Delta.

Addressing the Board
The committee and board meetings of the Board of Directors are open to the public. Members of the public have a right to address a committee or Board on matters within the jurisdiction of that committee or Board. Matters not on the agenda cannot be acted upon or discussed by the Board.

The Board has the discretion to limit the public input on any item based on the number of people requesting to speak and the business of the Board. Members of the public addressing the Board or a committee shall be limited to three minutes at each meeting. Organizations shall be limited to a total of five minutes if more than one representative wishes to speak.

Request to speak cards are to be submitted to Board support staff prior to the start of the meeting. Speaker cards are available in meeting rooms.

Members of the public bringing handouts for the Board’s consideration must provide 60 copies to Board support staff prior to the meeting. The Board or committee chair retains discretion as to whether such handouts are distributed to their members.
Visitor Screening
To ensure the safety of attendees at public meetings, visitors will be required to pass through a security screening (metal detector and baggage scanner) and check in at the Security Reception Desk.

This will be required for all visitors (including members of the public) that enter the building on Board and Committee meeting days.

Please allow up to 15 minutes for receiving security clearance.
