Board of Directors

San Bernadino Valley Water Conservation District board members and district boundaries.


In 2011, the Board sponsored SB-235 authored by State Senator Gloria Negrete-McLeod, which enabled them to reduce the Board from a seven-member board to a five-member board. The Conservation District reviewed several scenarios and developed a map for redistricting into five divisions. The Board adopted Resolution No. 481 Implementing Senate Bill 235, ordered the reorganization of the divisions, and reduced the number of board members from seven to five in September 2012. 

In 2022 the Board reviewed and revised the division boundaries based on the most recent census data received from 2020, per Election Code section 22001. There were two public hearings held on redistricting, one on February 9 and another on March 9; both were advertised in local newspapers. The updated division boundaries are shown in the graphic below: The Board adopted Resolution No. 597, and scenario 7 was approved by the Board.
