Water Resources Advisory Committee

Welcome to the Water Resources Advisory Committee in Island County, Washington.
The mission of the Water Resource Advisory Committee is to ensure that the water resources of Island County are managed and protected in such a way as to ensure sustainable use, while protecting habitat, environmental and human health.
There are twelve members on the Water Resource Advisory Committee.  Four for each of the county's distinct geographical areas - North Whidbey, Central/South Whidbey, and Camano Island - representing the four water resource interests of Groundwater, Stormwater, Watershed Management, and Salmon Recovery.
The Water Resources Advisory Committee was formed by the Board of Island County Commissioners in 1999 to address water resource planning and management.  The WRAC was created by sun setting three previous citizen advisory committees: The Groundwater Advisory Committee, the Stormwater Advisory Committee, and the North Whidbey Watershed Management Advisory Committee.  As many of the committees issues overlapped, Island County and Department of Ecology recognized the need to approach water resource protection on a comprehensive basis.
