My Top 3 Priorities

  • For the Water District to continue to work cooperatively with the other water users in the valley to address the recent state mandates for conservation and sustainability.
  • To redouble the District’s pursuit of projects to ensure sufficient high quality water is available in the future, at an affordable price, to its customers.
  • To develop partnerships with other organizations to actively assist customers in beautifying the community with attractive low-water landscaping.
