We value the voices of our residents. The Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) exists to bring forward ideas and respond to concerns from people we serve in the community.
Who is the CAC?
The Citizens Advisory Committee is a group of volunteers with a shared commitment to preserving clean water. They come with a variety of talents and educational backgrounds and help to further common goals in their community. Members provide guidance on which issues are most important to them, and how we can continually improve our programs.
