2016 was a significant year for the Regional Water Authority’s Advocacy Program. Over several years we had set up the structure, identified priorities, set goals and engaged RWA members. This was the year to fully execute the program. I am proud of our team and our region for all we have accomplished.
Keeping our eye on the goal of ensuring that regional needs and concerns are positively represented, our team identified Water Use Efficiency and Conservation, Water Efficiency Funding, Public Goods Charge, Water Transfers and Consolidation as key priorities. We needed to be nimble as bills were introduced, amended, gutted and in some cases brought to the floor. We increased our capacity to be both proactive on issues and reactive to changing circumstances.
