District achievement demonstrates exceptional displays of transparency and communications.
At a recent board meeting, Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
This recognition is the highest form of acknowledgement in governmental and financial reporting. It is given to agencies demonstrating exceptional financial transparency and communication. Less than 10 percent of special districts in the State of California are recipients of this award, which is judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program. EVMWD has received the recognition for 24 consecutive years.
“EVMWD is honored to, once again, have been recognized in the top tier of financial reporting,” said Harvey Ryan, president of the EVMWD board of directors. “With fine attention to detail and dedication to excellence, the EVMWD finance team continually displays our commitment to transparent reporting to our customers.”
The GFOA is a non-profit organization founded in 1906 to represent public finance officials throughout the United States and Canada. The CAFR includes audited financial statements and notes, an independent auditors report, an analytical overview of EVMWD’s financial activities, and general information about EVMWD.
EVMWD provides service to more than 144,000 water, wastewater and agricultural customers in a 96-square-mile area in Western Riverside County. The District is a sub-agency of the Western Municipal Water District and a member agency of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
