Water Board Elections


Local water boards, including Community Services Districts (CSDs), Public Utilities Districts (PUDs), and nonprofit Mutual water companies, as well as small cities, are responsible for implementing the Human Right to Water in many rural communities. In order for water boards to be strong, inclusive and diverse representation matters.

Coming Soon: The California Civic Engagement Project at UC Davis will release a fact sheet highlighting key findings from new research on Latino representation in California’s water board elections. The fact sheet will be posted on February 9thTo receive a copy of the report and to get updates on upcoming research dissemination events, sign up below.
