As this water agency looks toward the future, the Board of Directors and executive staff of Eastern Municipal Water District are proud, confident and ready.

We're proud of how well we serve the people of our region. Originally funded with $75 from the San Jacinto River Conservation District, our assets now exceed $2 billion. Where 20,000 people were eager to augment their water resources in 1950, we now can point to about 768,000 in our service area, and are preparing for the future.
