MWD Management Team

From the time they were tasked with carving a water lifeline from the Colorado River across the desert, Metropolitan managers have built a culture of hard work, determination and innovation. Many of those early leaders helped forge and create the legal and political framework that enabled an alliance of Southern California cities to form Metropolitan. They have since helped lead the agency to meet the demands of a burgeoning population in the face of various challenges, including drought, an evolving regulatory environment and, most recently, climate change. While Metropolitan’s tasks and responsibilities have evolved and expanded, the basic management structure has remained. Today, the managers and their staff are nationally recognized experts in the water industry.

Metropolitan is managed by four departments whose heads report directly to the Board of Directors: the General Manager, General Counsel, General Auditor and Ethics Officer.
