SCV Water is currently governed by a 12-member Board of Directors, including one director who is appointed to represent LA County Waterworks District 36. Of the remaining 11 members, six were elected to a 4-year term in November 2020, and 5 are carried forward from the original agency formation.
At the general election in November 2022, two additional seats will be eliminated, resulting in 9 members directly elected from three electoral divisions, effective January 2023. The appointed seat will also sunset at this time.
Officers of the board include a president and two vice presidents. The board also appoints a general manager and a treasurer or auditor and employs a secretary and general counsel, who serves as the assistant secretary.
