Current Board of Directors

The Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) is

governed by a board of directors appointed by the governing bodies of Denton County and the District’s members. The board is composed of 25 representatives—one participating member from each of the District’s 23 member cities, towns and water districts, and two statutory members from Denton County. Each representative serves a four-year term.

Since members set policies of the District and establish the programs through their direct representation on the board of directors, the services provided by the District fit local needs and are in response to the requests of the District’s members.

In contrast with typical legislation for water districts, member cities were not named in legislation creating the District. Instead, legislation provided for a two-year sign-up period and specified that public entities could join as “Participating Members” or as “Contract Members” for up to 10 years. To date, 24 entities have executed contracts to become members of the District.
