The Desert Water Agency Board of Directors voted unanimously on Tuesday to adopt a map which breaks the service boundaries into five divisions and kick-starts the transition from at-large to division elections.

Until then, all board members will serve at-large representing the entire service area which includes Palm Springs and portions of Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs and unincorporated Riverside County.

There are six maps (A, B, C, D, E revised and F) that members of the public can review and provide feedback on. A fifth pubilc hearing on this matter will be on July 16 at Desert Water Agency. At that time, the Board of Directors will vote to adopt a final map.
