Management & Boards

The Representative Policy Board (RPB) is composed of one representative from each of the 20 municipalities in our region plus one member appointed by the Governor of Connecticut. The chief elected official of each municipality appoints an individual to the RPB, who is confirmed by the municipality’s legislative body. The RPB’s votes are weighted based on a formula that considers the number of customers and the amount of land that is owned in each municipality. No representative has more than 13 of the total 101 weighted votes on the RPB. The duties of the RPB are to:

  • appoint the five members to serve on the Regional Water Authority;
  • approve land sales, rate increases, bond sales and any capital project with a cost in excess of $2 million;
  • appoint the Office of Consumer Affairs as well as the external auditor; and
  • ratify the appointment of the chief executive officer.
