LPWWA Board Vacancies

The LPWWA Board of Directors are appointed by Animas La Plata Water Conservancy District (ALPWCD) and La Plata West Water Conservancy District (LPWCD).  Each District appoints three seats on the Board on staggered terms.  Directors appointed by the LPWCD shall reside within the boundaries the LPWCD.  Directors appointed by ALPWCD do not have residency requirements.  The Directors so appointed appoint a seventh Director. Directors serve terms of three years, with a Director serving at the pleasure of the governing body appointing such Director. 

Three seats on the La Plata West Water Authority Board are coming up for consideration. One will be an appointee by the LPWCD for a three year term, ending in November of 2022 (who must reside within the LPWCD boundaries). The ALPWCD will be making an appointment for a three year term ending in November of 2022 and an appointment to complete a two year term that will end in November of 2021.
