Transparency and Accountability

As a public agency, the water district is committed to being transparent and accountable with regard to our operations and business practices. Many aspects of the water district's operations are periodically evaluated, analyzed or audited. Reports from these analyses are public information and are made available below. In addition, the district's Strategic Plan 2010-2015 is included for general interest.

On May 9, 2014, the district hosted a Blue Ribbon Transparency Summit. To see videos of the presentaiton and discussion, and to download the agenda, go here >>

  • District Strategic Plan: Like many other water resources agencies in California, the district is facing a fast-changing operating environment with unprecedented challenges on many fronts, led by an uncertain local, state and national economic climate. To address these challenges, the district updated an agency-wide strategic plan that included business analyses and review of the vision, issues, goals, strategies and tactics for the next three to five years, 2010 – 2015.

  • Board Audit Committee: The Board of Directors established an Audit Committee to receive an independent review of district activities to ensure sound fiscal management. Reports for audits and reviews commissioned by the board can be found on the Board Audit Committee webpage.
