Clean Water Services Advisory Commission

Application for Appointment

The Clean Water Services Advisory Commission (CWAC) reviews and discusses major policy issues and programs and makes recommendations to the Clean Water Services Board of Directors. The Board is composed of the individuals elected to the Washington County Board of Commissioners. There are 15 Board-appointed members of CWAC who reflect a broad base of stakeholder interest.

CWAC terms are four years and meetings are generally held the second Wednesday of the month at the Clean Water Services Administration Building Complex at 2550 SW Hillsboro Highway, Hillsboro, OR, 97123.

By donating a modest amount of time to work in partnership with elected officials and staff people, 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.
