The City of San Bernardino operates its water system through its Municipal Water Department. Although the City is the responsible entity, its charter and documents refer to the Department as the water entity. The Department provides water service to nearly 200,000 residents, and wastewater treatment for about 350,000 people in San Bernardino and the surrounding communities. The Department is governed by a five-member board of commissioners appointed by the City Council. The DWP conducts its own individual financial statements, independent of the City's financial statements (accessible via the link below).
