Become a volunteer advisor and help protect clean water in your community. The board of managers is seeking applications to its 2019 Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). As representatives of citizen interests, committee members support the watershed's board of managers in their mission to protect, manage, and restore water resources. They provide recommendations to aid in decision making, communicate concerns from the public, and help educate the community on best practices for protecting clean water.
