District FAQs

The Board of Directors has oversight over Scotts Valley Water District and appoints the General Manager to handle day-to-day operations. The directors have the power to set water rates, establish policies that support the vision and the mission of the district, and to provide direction to the General Manager on matters within the authority of the Board. The operation of the District requires that the directors remain objective and responsive to the needs of the public they serve, make decisions within the proper channels of governmental structure and not use the public office for personal gain.

Regular meetings are scheduled for the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Santa Margarita Community Room, 2 Civic Center Dr.

Meeting dates are subject to change, please contact the District for date confirmation at (831) 438-2363.
