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.
The CAC holds regular monthly meetings on the third Monday of the month, 6-8 p.m. Changes or additions to the meeting schedule will be posted on this webpage and District calendar. One District manager typically attends each CAC meeting.
