County seeks diverse applicants for Clean Water Commission - 10/03/22

Vancouver, Wash. – The county manager is seeking to fill three open positions on the Clean Water Commission, an advisory group representing the community’s needs and interests in stormwater management decisions. Terms begin January 2023 and end December 2025.

Applicants must be residents of Clark County, either unincorporated areas of the county or a city/town. Professional experience in stormwater management is not required. Applicants with an interest in water quality, data and program analysis, education and outreach, or experience advocating for the environment are encouraged to apply. 

In seeking to represent the community’s diversity, applicants are encouraged to request interpretation, translated materials, or assistance overcoming challenges to meeting participation, if needed, by emailing pw.outreach@clark.wa.gov or calling 564.397.1679. Interpretation and translation are available, upon request, for all commission meetings, communications and materials. 

The nine-member group makes recommendations to the Clark County Council about services and policies protecting watershed health throughout the community, and collaborates with residents, agencies, businesses and nonprofit organizations. The commission meets 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every other month, starting in January. Currently, meetings can be attended in-person or virtually via WebEx.

To apply, interested residents should submit a letter of interest and a resume to Clark County Public Works Clean Water Division c/o Brent Davis, PO Box 5000, Vancouver WA 98660-5000 or via email to cleanwater@clark.wa.gov. Applications must be submitted by noon Monday, Oct. 31.
