The SWG launched the Pooled Resources Oversight Committee at its meeting on January 15, 2014. The committee will have its first meeting in early January. The official members of the group for this first meeting are:
For permittees: Will Appleton, Federal Way; Heather Kibbey, Everett; Jim Simmonds, King County; Phyllis Varner (or Kit Paulsen), Bellevue.
For other groups: Jay Davis, USFWS; Tom Putnam, Puget Soundkeeper Alliance; Bruce Wulkan, PSP (or Abby Barnes, WDNR).
Long-term membership of the committee will be confirmed at the SWG meeting on March 19, 2014.
A previous SWG subgroup recommended the means by which the SWG and Ecology will interact in administering the pooled resources approach for implementing the Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program (RSMP). The Committee will advise Ecoloogy on contracting decisions and provide project-management oversight of the RSMP scope, schedule, budget, and deliverables. On May 16, 2012 the SWG approved a charter for this oversight committee.
Next committee meeting: TBD in mid-April. First meeting was on February 10. Agenda, summary, and meeting materials are posted below.
SWG discussion of comments received on the draft versions of the oversight committee charter, and all of the comments received, are posted here. Notes from prior meetings or conference calls are posted below.
