Hillsboro, OR - November 20, 2015

Clean Water Services' Board of Directors is seeking applications from individuals to serve a four-year term on its Clean Water Advisory Commission (CWAC). There are currently two vacancies on the Commission. Both vacancies are for a business representative. Applicants for these positions must own, manage or work for a business that operates within Clean Water Services' boundaries other than land development or construction. CWS' service district includes the urban growth boundary in Washington County as well as the Cities of North Plains, Banks and Gaston. 

The purpose of the 15-member CWAC is to review and discuss major policy issues and programs related to the management of water resources in the Tualatin River Watershed and make recommendations to the Board of Directors. Clean Water Services' Board of Directors also serves as the Washington County Commissioners. Meetings are generally held on the evening of the second Wednesday of each month and typically run two hours.
