Applicants sought for Surface Water Management Advisory Board

Pierce County is seeking applicants to fill vacancies on the nine-member Surface Water Management Advisory Board.

Advisory board members will be involved in such issues as storm drainage and surface water management, water quality storm drainage plans, rate structures, capital improvement projects, financing, and annual program goals for the Surface Water Management division of Pierce County Public Works and Utilities.

The mission of Surface Water Management is to be a responsive service organization that efficiently addresses flood control, water quality and the preservation of natural drainage systems.
Meetings are held monthly. Advisory board members will be selected to represent each of the watersheds and preference will be given to candidates living in unincorporated Pierce County. These positions are uncompensated.

To apply
The application can be obtained by calling (253) 798-2725 or downloaded at www.piercecountywa.org/swab. Completed applications should be submitted to Harold Smelt at Pierce County Public Works and Utilities, 2702 S. 42nd St., Suite 201, Tacoma, WA 98409-7322.

To ensure broad diversity of experience and opinion on the board when filling vacancies, consideration is given to those candidates that can best supplement the knowledge and perspectives of the current board members. All applications received will be placed on a roster for consideration when vacancies occur.
