IWRC Advisory Committee

In 1987, the IWRC was created through the Groundwater Protection Act, which also established an advisory committee comprised of representatives from a variety of organizations to advise the center on its endeavors. The advisory committee meets with IWRC staff annually to discuss current initiatives as well as future ventures.
