The Watershed Planning Subcommittee meets on the last Monday of each month, approximately six times per year.
The subcommittee prioritizes and analyzes regional water-related issues and makes recommendations to the Environmental Planning Advisory Committee for strategic planning purposes. EPAC makes recommendations that are considered by the PAG Regional Council. Water-related meeting topics include: water quality issues, stormwater management, wastewater treatment and use, groundwater levels and pumping, riparian ecology, green infrastructure and more. Members include representatives from jurisdictions and various interest groups, including the University of Arizona and water companies. All interested parties are welcome to attend, participate and suggest pertinent presentation topics. Those interested in participating may contact Mead Mier at email@example.com
Other related committees include the Stormwater Management Working Group, the Statewide Water Quality Management Working Group and 208 Planning Task Forces, which are formed as needed to provide a public comment venue.
In the interest of integrated planning efforts and reducing meetings, important water topics are often moved up to EPAC and WPS participants are encouraged to attend.
