West Basin Municipal Water District's Board of Directors adheres to strong fiduciary responsbilities. Annually, the financial policies are reviewed and we seek input from our external financial advisors and legal team to ensure West Basin adheres to the latest changes in regulations and best practices.

Additionally, West Basin's Board of Directors allocated more than $3.7 million to eliminate West Basin's financial obligation to fund "Other Post-Employment Benefits" (OPEB) for retirement, health and dental benefits.


The Standby Charge is considered each year at a public hearing. Originally adopted in 1991 to support the development of new, local water supplies, the Standby Charge continues to pay for West Basin's continually growing, world-class recycled water program. To date, West Basin has produced more than 130 billion gallons of recycled water to offset importing water, diversify local supplies, and provide environmental benefits for Santa Monica Bay.
