On May 11th, County Executive Ike Leggett announced that the County is seeking applicants for the Water Quality Advisory Group.

The Montgomery County Water Quality Advisory Group (WQAG) provides recommendations to the County Executive and the County Council on water quality management goals and policies, program priorities, and funding.

WQAG’s mission is to recommend programs, policies and priorities that protect, maintain, and restore the biological, chemical and physical integrity of county streams, rivers, wetlands, groundwater, lakes, and other water resources. Recommendations from WQAG are considered in shaping the County’s programmatic direction of water resource management. This group often provides input by transmitting letters and an annual report. It includes 15 resident members and 3 non-voting agency members.

The group meets monthly, typically second Monday of each month, with occasional adjustments for holidays.

To learn more about the history and membership of the WQAG, check out this page on the Department of Environmental Protection’s website.

You can apply for the WGAG vacancy online: www.montgomerycountymd.gov/boards/index.html. Please note, applications are due by June 1, 2018.
