Who We Are
Twentynine Palms Water District (TPWD) operates as an independent special district, providing water services to the residents of Twentynine Palms and unincorporated areas of San Bernardino.
Special Districts are unique forms of local government, created by residents, focused on a specific set of services for the community.
This focus on specific services allows special districts to operate more efficiently than other forms of government.
Independent special districts are governed by an elected board of directors who answer to the residents, voters and landowners in their service area.
TPWD is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors comprised of residents of Twentynine Palms, who are dedicated to preserving and providing a safe, reliable water supply to the community. The Mission of the Twentynine Palms Water District is to provide a safe and adequate supply of water at the lowest feasible cost to the people of the District and to preserve and protect the water resources within the established boundaries of the District.
The District employs twenty-two full time employees with the Director of Operations position currently vacant. Below is the District’s current organizational chart. Click Here
