MSWD is governed by a five-member Board of Directors. Directors are elected concurrent with the general elections every even-numbered year. Director’s terms are four-years. The election of directors alternates between three seats and two seats, respectively, every two years.

All Directors are appointed to serve on two of five Board committees (finance, engineering, public affairs, human relations and executive committee). Members also serve as liaisons to other governmental, community, regional and national boards, associations and organizations.
