At stake is control of the Metropolitan Water District, the world's largest water agency and the primary source of water for more than 15 million Southern Californians in a district extending from Ventura County to the Mexican border and inland to Riverside.

More than 30 candidates are vying for 23 seats in eight water district elections in what observers say are typically low-key races.

Many of the candidates agree that conservation, water quality and strong service top the list of issues in the Nov. 6 elections.
