Water Policy Advisory Committee

Purpose Statement

The Water Policy Advisory Committee serves as an advisory group to the Tuolumne County Water Agency for reviewing, commenting on and recommending actions that will protect, enhance and expand water resources throughout Tuolumne County. The driving force is to ensure adequate water supplies to meet the diverse needs of a healthy and economically viable community. Such water supply needs include but are not limited to: domestic consumption; fire protection; economic development; base industries (e.g. recreation, agriculture, etc…) and habitat protection.

The policy advisory committee exists in order to serve the full Board by:
          1. Insuring policy items coming to the full Board are mature:
              •   the policy issue has been properly defined
              •   all reasonable alternatives relative to a particular policy issue have been                      identified, researched and considered
              •   recommendations are clear and well substantiated
          2. Providing a place for investigation of specific policy issues brought to the full                Board’s attention by members of the Board and/or public; and
          3. Providing a forum for early and complete public vetting of potentially                            controversial policy issues.
