SWP Implementation Workgroup – Ad Hoc Organizational Planning Committee @ South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority Gaillard Room
Jul 5 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

Meeting materials: SWP Implementation Workgroup ReportAd Hoc Committee Planning document

Overview

On February 6, 2018 the Water Planning Council (WPC) approved the “State Water Plan Implementation Framework Concept”  as developed by the Water Planning Council Advisory Group (WPCAG).   A core element in that concept is the creation of a State Water Plan Implementation Workgroup (Workgroup).

At its March 3rd meeting the WPC authorized the WPCAG to begin developing an organizational structure for the Workgroup.  The WPCAG has formed an Ad Hoc Organizational Planning Committee (Committee) for the sole purpose of providing recommendations to the WPC on the structure of the Workgroup.

It is envisioned that the Committee will complete a draft report with the recommended organizational structure of the Workgroup prior to the WPCAG’s July 17th meeting.
