Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) has been recognized by the National Procurement Institute with its 2023 Annual Achievement of Excellence in Procurement Award.

The honor goes to agencies that embrace innovation, professionalism, productivity, leadership and e-procurement.

EMWD was one of 194 agencies recognized across the United States and Canada and was one of 25 special districts that received the honor.

EMWD’s Purchasing and Contracts department works to procure a wide range of critical supplies that allow it to function efficiently to help serve nearly 1 million customers across its service area. EMWD uses industry best practices and adheres to all state and federal laws for public agencies when sourcing materials, supplies and contractors.

“EMWD is proud to be recognized for its practices that help provide essential services for our community while delivering safety, quality and value to our ratepayers,” EMWD Board President Phil Paule said. “We look forward to continuing that commitment and being an industry-leading organization in this arena.”

Eastern Municipal Water District is the water, wastewater service and recycled water provider to nearly one million people living and working within a 558-square mile service area in western Riverside County. It is California’s sixth-largest retail water agency, and its mission is “To deliver value to our diverse customers and the communities we serve by providing safe, reliable, economical and environmentally sustainable water, wastewater and recycled water services.” More information can be found at
