The Marina Coast Water District is a special district formed in 1960 for the purpose of installing and operating a water supply, water distribution system and wastewater collection system for the City of Marina. The District now serves approximately 37,000 residents through 10,500 connections in its Marina-Ord Community service area which is comprised of the City of Marina and portions of Seaside, Monterey and Del Rey Oaks and a portion of the County of Monterey. The District also serves as the Marina Coast Water District Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MCWDGSA) which serves as the management agency overseeing the Monterey sub-basin of the greater Salinas Valley Basin. The MCWDGSA is in the beginning stages of developing the necessary plans for its operations.
MCWD is governed by a five member independently elected Board of Directors (Board) serving staggered four-year terms elected at-large from within the District’s Marina service area. MCWD operates under a Board-Manager form of government. The Board of Directors appoints the General Manager who is responsible for the administration of the District. This is an exciting time for MCWD as it embarks on a unique period of growth and development with a diverse array of planned projects. Reporting to the General Manager, the next District Engineer will play an essential role in ensuring the District’s long-term success and will manage a $200 million Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan with a team of four engineers and staff.
