Clean Water Services Seeks Applicants for Advisory Commission

Hillsboro, OR - July 28, 2021

Members advise on water resources management policies and programs

Clean Water Services’ Board of Directors is seeking applicants to serve four-year terms on its Clean Water Services Advisory Commission (CWAC). The 15 members of CWAC review major policy issues and programs related to the management of water resources in the Tualatin River Watershed and make recommendations to the Board. The Clean Water Services Board also serves as the Washington County Board of Commissioners.

There are four open positions:

  • District 2 Representative: Applicants must live in Washington County Commission District 2, which includes Bethany, Cedar Hills, Cedar Mill, Helvetia, Raleigh Hills, Rock Creek and portions of Beaverton and Hillsboro.
  • District At-Large Representative: Applicants must live in Washington County.
  • Agricultural Representative #2: Applicants for this position must own, manage or work for an agricultural business or organization that operates within Clean Water Services’ boundaries.
  • Builder/Developer Representative #2: Applicants for this position must own, manage or work for a home builder or developer that operates with Clean Water Services’ boundaries.

Applications will be accepted through August 31 or until the positions are filled. CWAC applications are available online or at the CWS main office at 2550 SW Hillsboro Highway in Hillsboro. People interested in applying for CWAC are encouraged to contact Mark Jockers at 503.681.3600.

Meetings are generally held in the evening on the second Wednesday of each month and last about two hours. By donating a modest amount of time to work in partnership with elected officials and staff, a community member can add much to the character of Clean Water Services. The voice and viewpoint of a community member can be the turning point in many policy decisions.

Everything we do at Clean Water Services aims to protect public health, while enhancing the natural environment of the Tualatin River Watershed. Combining science and nature, we work in partnership with others to safeguard the river’s health and vitality, ensure the economic success of our region, and protect public health for more than 600,000 people in urban Washington County. Although Clean Water Services maintains a close working relationship with Washington County government, it is separately managed and financed.
