Water districts are responsible for proper administration and distribution of the public waters within their designated boundaries.
Water district staff might include an elected watermaster, watermaster assistants, and a treasurer.
A watermaster's duties include delivering water to users in the district according to the specific elements of the water rights, measuring and reporting the water use, investigating unauthorized water use, and maintaining accurate records of water right ownership.
The treasurer is responsible for managing the district finances.
If a water district chooses to select an advisory committee, the advisory committee assists or advises IDWR and the watermaster in matters pertaining to the distribution of water within the district.
