Why do you keep coming to us for money to fund employee salaries and benefits?

The District is a service organization.   Providing reliable drinking water available to all our customers 24/7 is a labor-intensive operation.  Most District jobs require either a college degree or State certification and specialized training to operate treatment and distribution facilities.  Recruiting and retaining this well-qualified workforce that can provide the level of service our customers expect and deserve is expensive and we try to be transparent with the public about that.
