GOVERNMENT AND ORGANIZATION
The Twentynine Palms Water District was formed in 1954 when the community voted, by a 5-1 margin, to form a County Water District (Water Code 30000 et seq.). Members of the Chamber of Commerce known as the “Water Committee” spearheaded this effort. Today the Twentynine Palms Water District serves the city of Twentynine Palms and outlying areas by pumping and distributing local groundwater – the only available supply. The District serves about 18,000 people over 87 square miles. The District maintains about 8,000 meters, 200 miles of pipeline and 17 million gallons of water storage capacity.
The Board of Directors complies with the requirements of the Fair Political Practices Act, the Ralph M. Brown Act, Public Records Act and statutory requirements for bi-annual Ethics (AB 1234) and sexual harassment prevention training. The Board has adopted a Code of Conduct for Members of the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors approves the budget in June, prior to the start of the new fiscal year in July.
