Mission Springs Water District (MSWD) tap water delivered to your home is still less than a penny per gallon, for our award-winning water you can trust. That is a real deal!
MSWD by law cannot make a profit. Consumers are only charged what it costs for an efficient delivery of the most vital natural resource we have, water.
Can you imagine water rates skyrocketing like gasoline has? Nancy has been successful in keeping rates as low as possible. "I have been committed to keeping rates as low as possible and with your vote I will continue to do so. I know what it takes to get water to your home, and I will never vote to raise our water and sewer rates over what it costs to keep you supplied with safe, clean and reliable water supply."
Born and raised in Long Beach, CA, Nancy attended CSU Long Beach. she majored in Health Science. She moved to DHS in 1973 where she met her husband, Pete. They raised a family in Whitewater, west of DHS while Pete worked as a general contractor for their family business and Nancy was office manager.
Through volunteering and leadership, Nancy makes a significant and positive difference for local youth. While raising her children, she was Parent Teachers Group Treasurer at DHS Elementary, lead the community to recognize her friend and principal Edward Wenzalff, was a founding member and first President of the Desert Springs Middle School Community Teachers Organization (DSMS CTO). In addition, Nancy supported Little League as a "baseball Mom", Board Member, Player Agent and snack bar worker.
Did you know that MSWD has zero dept? During Nancy's service MSWD has grown and operated with fiscal accountability, with over $40 million in grants received for necessary infrastructure. There's more great news! With Nancy's oversight MSWD has been approved for a $68 million state grant to pay 100% of the costs for the new Regional Water Reclamation Facility and related infrastructure. You can see the progress of this project located just east of the I-10 and Indian Canyon intersection.
Mission Springs Water District is in the land of sunshine! Solar is the most abundant, fastest, and cheapest energy source on Earth, and it generates minimal greenhouse gas emissions. Under Nancy's leadership the MSWD Solar Project was born. In its fourth year this $3.3 million AQMD Grant provides a 1.1-Megawatt solar power project. It saves about $300,000 per year and up to $12 million over the life of the project.
Nancy will continue to keep groundwater management at a local level and work to maintain our world-renowned Hot Springs and award-winning drinking water a top priority. She is ready for opportunities with respect to federal groundwater rights for Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). The way water is managed in the Coachella Valley will continue to change.
"I believe this is an important time in history when decisions make a bigger impact than normal. In these times of challenge, I especially want to use my knowledge of this excellent water district, our water supply and rights to water for the benefit to a community I have loved over thirty years. It is not time for heedless change, my record speaks for itself, I have the EXPERIENCE and DEDICATION needed to protect our water and our wallets."
