The Big Bear Municipal Water District is an independent special district governed by a five-member board of directors elected by geographic division. 

The MWD is responsible for the overall management of Big Bear Lake, Southern California’s premier recreational Lake.

The primary goal of the MWD is the stabilization of Big Bear Lake

at as constant a water level as possible, given the availability

of water and financing. 

A more constant lake level increases recreational opportunities,stabilizes property values, improves water

quality, aesthetic benefits and supports a healthier fish and

wildlife environment.

The mission of Lake Stabilization is accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive water management plan which includes controlled lake releases combined with a water purchase contract to provide water to the water rights holder while minimizing demand on the reservoir.
