Soquel Creek Water District is governed by a five-person Board of Directors, who are elected to four-year terms. Lather has been a registered civil engineer for 32 years.

The Water District encompasses 7 miles of shoreline and extends 1 to 3 miles inland. The District works closely with Central Water District because of proximity of aquifers.
