Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District is honoring Director Philip Williams by renaming its building to the Philip R. Williams Administration Building.
EVMWD invites the public to a Dedication Ceremony on Thursday, November 2, at 9 a.m. at 31315 Chaney St., Lake Elsinore.
Williams represented Division 4, which included the areas of Corona, western Lake Elsinore, and the unincorporated communities of Horsethief Canyon and Alberhill. He served as president eight times and vice president six times over his 21-year tenure on the board.
Williams passed away on November 20, 2022, at the age of 62. A lifelong resident of Lake Elsinore, Williams was a local real estate broker and licensed general contractor. His priorities while serving on the EVMWD board focused on ensuring fiscal responsibility, increasing education and assistance opportunities, and strategically managing local water supplies for a sustainable future.
Williams was an advocate for water affordability, initiating with the board the District’s rate assistance program in 2015. He also worked tirelessly with local, state, and federal agencies to ensure grants and funding for water reliability and sustainability projects needed for local infrastructure improvements.
While serving on the board, Williams was a proponent of efficiency and service, taking part in key decisions to make improvements through customer service and communication strategy.
Williams served on the Engineering and Operations Committee, Legislation, Conservation & Outreach Committee, and Finance and Administration Committee. At the time of his passing, Williams served on boards of the Lake Elsinore and San Jacinto Watersheds Authority (LESJWA JPA), Bedford-Coldwater Groundwater Sustainability Agency (BCGSA JPA), ACWA JPIA, and Local Agency Formation Commission.
