Board profile

A seven-member Board of Directors, elected by wards for four-year terms, determines overall policies, which are then implemented under the direction of the General Manager. Board meetings are open to the public and held the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 1:15 p.m. in the Board Room, 2nd Floor, 375 11th Street, Oakland, CA. In addition, workshop sessions, special meetings, and public hearings are occasionally scheduled and notices are sent to the public.

Each Board member serves on one or more standing Board committees. The committees review and make recommendations with regard to matters of major interest prior to discussion by the full Board at a regular meeting. Standing committees of the Board include Planning, Legislative/Human Resources, and Finance/Administration.

Board members also represent EBMUD on the Association of California Water Agencies, the Bay Area Water Forum, the Freeport Regional Water Authority, the Upper Mokelumne River Watershed Authority, the Dublin San Ramon Services District/EBMUD Recycled Water Authority (DERWA), the Special Districts Associations of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, EBMUD/East Bay Regional Park District Liaison Committee, and the Upcounty Liaison Committee.

To contact Board members or for questions about Board meetings, email the Secretary of the District.
