Utility Management Review Board

The Utility Management Review Board (UMRB) supports natural gas, water and wastewater public utility districts by assuring that they are financially self-supporting and by requiring appropriate action by those districts that have financial deficiencies. The Board addresses complaints by utility district customers, authorizes the creation of new utility districts and manages ouster proceedings for utility district commissioners related to fraud, attendance or training. The Board also establishes the parameters for water accountability.
