As a member of the Agency, the Sonoma Resource Conservation District (RCD) will appoint one member to the Advisory Committee, who will serve a two-year term. The RCD is seeking applications from stakeholders in the Petaluma Valley groundwater basin who are interested in serving on the Committee. To be eligible for appointment, applicants must live or work within or represent an organization with a presence in the Petaluma Valley Groundwater Basin, identified by the Department of Water Resources current Bulletin 118.
If you are interested in being appointed by the Sonoma RCD to serve on the Advisory Committee for the Petaluma Valley Groundwater Sustainability Agency, please apply by completing this form by August 4, 2017. If you would like to provide any supplemental materials (resume, letters of reference, etc.) please email them to email@example.com.
In addition to the Committee members appointed by each of the five Member Agencies (Sonoma RCD, City of Petaluma, County of Sonoma, North Bay Water District, and Sonoma County Water Agency), the Advisory Committee will also consist of five members appointed by the Agency Board: an environmental representative (from an organization with a presence in the Basin), a rural residential well owner, a representative from the business community, a representative of agricultural interest (surface water or groundwater user), and an at-large community representative (preference for disadvantaged community interest). Individuals interested in serving on the Advisory Committee are encouraged to apply both to the Sonoma RCD (using this form) and to the Agency Board (using the link provided below).
