Nominations due Dec. 31 for ag water quality committee

Nominations will be accepted through Dec. 31 for volunteers interested in serving on the Agricultural Water Quality Advisory Committee.

The 14-member committee offers guidance to the Colorado Department of Agriculture on issues affecting water quality.

“The Agricultural Water Quality Advisory Committee members serve a critical role of advising the department of agriculture on how to address ground and surface water quality issues. They also give input on proposed and ongoing program activities and, most importantly, provide a local perspective to a statewide program,” said Rob Wawrzynski, agricultural chemicals and groundwater protection program manager. 

“Advisory committee members help foster dialogue about addressing water quality issues by communicating the program’s work to the industries they represent and by soliciting industry feedback,” Wawrzynski said.

Nominations are sought for members of the committee representing agricultural chemical suppliers, agricultural producers, commercial pesticide applicators, the green industry, municipal and stormwater users and water resource professionals as well as the general public.
