Water Authority & MWD Tours
The Water Authority currently has four directors that serve as delegates to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board of Directors. These are: Directors Doug Wilson , Vincent Mudd, Keith Lewinger, and Fern Steiner.
Each year, these directors host tours, called inspection trips, that provide elected and appointed officials, business and environmental community leaders, civic leaders, media representatives, educators, and interested stakeholders with the opportunity to learn about current and historical water issues affecting the region from a statewide and local perspective. The tours also provide a first-hand look at the magnitude of the water delivery systems that feed Southern California, visiting numerous sites and facilities across the state.
There are currently three types of educational tours generally conducted November through June of each fiscal year. This year’s inspection trip schedule includes:
