Central Basin Municipal Water District serves a population of nearly 2 million people living within 24 cities in southeast Los Angeles County as well as unincorporated County areas. We do so by partnering with 47 retail water providers and one water wholesaler. Central Basin’s 227 square-mile service area is governed by five publicly elected directors. Voters in each of the five divisions elect one director to serve a four-year term.
District headquarters is located at 6252 Telegraph Road, Commerce, CA 90040-2512; telephone (323) 201-5500; fax (323) 201-5550.
