Local governments: Will Appleton,
Heather Kibbey, Kit Paulsen, and Jim Simmonds are members.
· Federal agencies: Chris Konrad is the member and Jay Davis is the alternate.
· State agencies: Bruce Wulkan is the member and Abby Barnes is the alternate.
· Environmental groups: Tom Putnam is the member and Katelyn Kinn is the alternate.Long-term membership of the committee will be confirmed at the SWG meeting in September 2014. All PROC members and alternates are encouraged to attend as many of the meetings as possible to ensure a smooth transition.
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: Tuesday, April 22 from 9-3 at the USGS office in Tacoma. Agenda and materials will be posted a week in advance. The morning will be combined with the SWG Effectivness Subgroup; the afternoon will be focused on budget and scope for Status and Trends.
