Next committee meeting: Tuesday, April 21, 2015 from 10-12 at USGS in Tacoma. Agenda and materials for previous meetings are posted at Ecology's webpage.
The SWG launched the Pooled Resources Oversight Committee in January 2014. The purpose of the committee is to provide transparency and accountability in expending the monitoring funds contributed by NPDES municipal stormwater permittees in western Washington. The committee will meet bimonthly or quarterly as needed. The official members of the group are:
Local government (permittee) representatives: Ben Parrish, Jim Simmonds, Theresa Thurlow, and Kelly Uhacz are members. The Committee Chair position is currently vacant.
Non-permittee representatives: Chris Konrad (Committee Vice Chair) and Tom Putnam are members. There is one vacant seat.
· Staff: RSMP Coordinator Brandi Lubliner and SWG Project Manager Karen Dinicola.
In May 2012 the SWG approved a charter for this committee as part recommending the means by which the SWG and Ecology will interact in administering the Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program (RSMP) pooled resources account. The committee advises Ecology on contracting decisions and provides project-management oversight of the RSMP scope, schedule, budget, and deliverables - following the prior recommendations of the SWG and determining whether new formal recommendations are needed.
The documents posted below are from earlier meetings of the subgroup that developed the Pooled Resources Oversight concept and approach. Meeting materials and agenda for the formal committee are posted at Ecology's webpage.
